Learning Continues at Home
The health and well-being of Manitobans is the top priority. At the advice of the Chief Provincial Public Health Officer, the Minister of Education suspended classroom learning indefinitely for this school year, but remote learning continues. Classes will resume based on public health recommendations. School divisions may close buildings to the public and limit access to staff and deliveries. Childcare centres in schools may continue to operate in keeping with Public Health Orders.
Students will learn remotely under teacher direction and support, and with parents and caregivers supporting learning. This is a challenging time for students, families, and educators. It requires compassion, flexibility, and a new approach to teaching and learning. Each student and family has unique needs and circumstances. Teachers will be flexible in planning for learning and will consider the mental health and well-being of all.
