The following archive is a list of weekly COVID-19 updates from the Superintendent’s Office. Updates are sent via email to all HSD parents/guardians.

Screen for Symptoms

Check Every Morning. Students must stay home when sick or exhibiting any symptoms of a cold, flu, or COVID-19. Use the following Self-Screening Checklist each morning before sending your child to school.

Call Health Links at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 if you need more information or have questions.


Provincial Mask Requirements

All students in Grades 4-12, and all staff and visitors are required to wear non-medical masks in areas where two-metre physical distancing is not possible. Parents/Guardians will continue to choose whether students in Grades K-3 should wear a mask while at school. Masks are required on school buses for bus drivers, students, and any other passenger on the bus. Non-medical masks will be provided for students or staff who require one. Read Guidance for Mask Use in Schools.

On September 18, 2020, the province issued further guidance on mask-wearing limitations and school accommodations.

Bus Transportation

Wherever possible, alternative transportation to school is encouraged. Parents/caregivers, and students may provide their own transportation to avoid possible virus exposure on the bus. Where school bus transportation is required, HSD will follow the Guidelines for Transportation to Schools.
