We hope this email finds all of you well, safe and enjoying your summer.
Today the Manitoba Government announced that in-class learning will resume on September 8th for all students in all public and independent schools across the province.
As per the Restoring Safe Schools document, students in Grades 9 to 12 may return for up to five days per week of in-class instruction if high schools can effectively implement physical distancing and the use of cohorts to reduce the risk of transmission and to ensure documentation for contact tracing.
St. Paul’s High School will be finalizing our school reopening plan and communicating with students and parents by the end of August. Maximizing in-class learning while maintaining a focus on safety and reducing the risk of transmission is of utmost importance for the upcoming school year. St. Paul’s High School’s reopening plan will outline:
• the school day structure, schedule and learning plan;
• how the school will ensure public health orders and guidance are followed;
• how the school will address the mental health and well-being of the school community including students and families
• how information will be communicated to students, families
Contingency plans may be implemented based upon the public health situation and subsequent directives from the Government of Manitoba. Any changes will be communicated accordingly. The three response levels are as follows:
Teachers will return to school on September 2nd providing an opportunity for orientation to public health requirements and the educational priorities to support students, as well as professional learning around recovery learning.
As per the parent letter dated June 30th, Grade 11 and 12 students are expected at school on September 8th, while Grade 9 and 10 students are expected on September 9th. The first day of classes will be September 10th.
We hope you all have a restful summer.
