Dear Parents/Caregivers, Students and Staff of GVSD:

As announced by the premier last week, the new public health orders come into effect today, Tuesday, February 15, 2022. Schools will return to Yellow (Caution) under the Pandemic Response System, Kindergarten to Grade 12 Schools at the Caution level (Yellow). The following are the important updates for schools in Manitoba:

• Masks:
o Masks are still required indoors and on school buses for all staff and students. It is recommended that staff continue to use medical masks but regular 3-layer masks are allowed.
o Masks may be removed when physically active in gym classes.

• Sports:
o Students ages 12 to 17 participating in indoor sports and recreation will no longer be required to provide proof of vaccination or recent test results.
o GVSD will be reviewing spectator attendance options. Information will be provided to parents/caregivers shortly.

• Illness and Close Contacts:
o Students and staff should stay home if they have symptoms or are not feeling well. If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID, self-isolation requirements remain in place.
o Close contacts of a person who tests positive for COVID-19 will no longer be required to self-isolate providing they have no symptoms.

• Kindergarten to Grade 6 will continue in cohorts.

• Physical distancing of 2 metres, to the greatest extent possible, is still required.

Garden Valley School Division will continue to follow the Public Health Orders and Manitoba Education mandates to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and school communities.

Thank you for your continued support, cooperation, and patience as we work through ever-changing restrictions.

Respectfully,

Janice Krahn
Interim Superintendent
