Manitoba First Nations School System says it will accommodate remote learning option for all students

Aug 27, 2020

At least three Manitoba First Nations are keeping schools closed this September and 11 First Nations will offer remote learning options in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Manitoba First Nation School System left it up to each community and its leadership to decide on a back-to-school plan that was best for them, said Nora Murdock, director of instructional services with the division.

“There’s a variety of scenarios for our schools in terms of how they are starting off the school year,” she said. “There is fear and anxiety, but we’re trying to reassure them that if they are going to enter that school building, that all the protocols will be in place and students are safe when they’re attending.”
