With the increased transmissibility of the Omicron variant of concern, Public Health staff are anticipating high case numbers of COVID-19 in the short term. In addition to the information on the COVID-19 Dashboard: School-Aged Cases and School Staff Cases in Manitobaattendance data for our school has been collated as an average percentage of student absenteeism this week related to:


  • COVID related illness (the individual is symptomatic and isolating) 
  • isolation related to awaiting results of COVID tests 
  • household isolation 


We continue to ask all families to please notify the school in regards to a known positive COVID-19 case, a suspected COVID-19 case, or any absence related to COVID-19 isolation as it is supportive of our effort to accurately monitor attendance rates. You may use school messenger to report a COVID-related absence or call the school with this information. 

For the week of January 24th, the average percentage of COVID related absences was 4.24%. ​

Please Note:  Numbers will be updated at the end of each week.
