Coronavirus: All Manitoba students to head back to classrooms this fall, education minister says

CA, 31 Jul 2020
All Manitoba students will return to an actual classroom this fall amid the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, the province’s education minister says.

Education Minister Kelvin Goertzen and Dr. Brent Roussin, Manitoba’s chief medical health officer, announced details of the province’s highly-anticipated back-to-school plan Thursday.

Under the plan classroom learning will be full-time for students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 and for special-needs students in all grades, with five days of instruction per week.

The province says remote learning may be required for students in Grades 9-12, depending on whether or not their high schools are able to implement necessary public health measures including physical distancing.
