Everyone in our school community can make a significant contribution towards slowing the spread of Covid-19 in Manitoba right now. Stay home if you are sick. When at school: wash and sanitize your hands frequently,  wear your mask, and stay 2m apart within your cohort.  Hang in there…. we can do this!
