Remote learning in Winnipeg and Brandon, as well as in the Garden Valley and Red River Valley school divisions will continue until the end of the school year.
Education Minister Cliff Cullen made the announcement on Thursday, June 3, 2021. He said that although the students are learning from home, as of June 14 schools will be able to schedule small groups of students to meet with teachers in person. This will allow for support, clinical support, assessments and transition planning.
“Extending remote learning as recommended by public health will protect students, families, teachers and staff as our COVID-19 case counts remain high and our health-care system is still under tremendous strain,” said Cullen. “We know the value of face-to-face instruction, and limited use for small groups of students will allow students and teachers to end the year on a stronger footing.”
The minister noted that all other schools in the province that moved to remote learning will be assessed on an individual basis by public health before they reopen.
