COVID-19 Learning Updates:

October 30, 2020 (Updated November 2, 2020):

Good Afternoon Students, Parents & Guardians: 

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority made the following announcement in a Press Conference earlier today:

Effective Monday, November 2, 12:01 a.m. the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority will be moving the Winnipeg Metropolitan Region to a Critical Red Response Level. You can read more about what this means here.

As directed by the Province in partnership with the Department of Education: 

Operations at St. Paul’s High School will remain unchanged. Students will continue to attend school for full in-person learning on Monday, November 2, 2020.  However, mask use will be required at all times.

As mentioned in our last communication, St. Paul’s High School has modified 8 classrooms to provide enhanced safety measures, thus allowing 2-meter distancing in all learning spaces across the campus. The cafeteria will remain a flex space with enhanced physical distancing in place. Photos of a modified classroom and cafeteria here.

Student Success at the Forefront:

Thank you for your support as we transitioned classrooms this week.

Our goal at St. Paul’s High School is not only to meet; but exceed the provincial protocols for safety while maximizing in-class learning. We are committed to providing your son with the highest quality education and will continue to put student success and safety at the forefront of what we do. 

Sports Activities: 

In the spirit of utmost safety and concern for our students, all sports events and activities will be paused effective immediately until further notice.  

Physical Education will continue, however, masks will be mandatory at all times. Please ensure your son has an extra mask available for use after gym class.

Other Co-Curriculars:

At this time, already approved co-curriculars (not including athletics)  may continue. 

Administration will continue evaluating “Return to Play '' protocols submitted by moderators. 

Modified co-curriculars already approved include: 

  • Debate
  • Maroon & White Society
  • Environmental Action Team
  • Student Council
  • Photography Club
  • The Crusader Newspaper

Pending Approval: 

  • The Dramatic Society

Staying Safe:

Now more than ever, it is important to remember the fundamentals. Here is how you can help us: 

  • Staying home if you are sick or when any member of your family is sick.
  • Reducing social contacts; social gatherings are discouraged.
  • Self-isolating pending COVID-19 test results, or self-isolating if someone in your household is symptomatic, pending COVID-19 test results.
  • Self-Assessing before attending school. See the COVID-19 Screening Tool
  • Practising the fundamentals, more information here

Wishing you all a safe, happy and restful weekend. 

See you all Monday.

Amanda Camara, on behalf of President, Kevin Booth ’78 and Principal, Bob Lewin


Visitor Access:

Out of an abundance of caution and based on the input of public health experts, educators, and parents, we request that visits to the school be as limited as possible. In the event you are required to visit the school, we ask that you call ahead and use proper sign-in procedures. Masks will be required for visitors to the school.
