Welcome back to a new school year. Hopefully everyone had a much-deserved relaxing summer break.
As we start a new year there are a few things to review for our MANTE membership.
- New Public Health Orders
To read the entire release, you can follow the link: https://news.gv.mb.ca/news/index.html
“The Manitoba government will require all provincial employees who work with vulnerable populations to be fully immunized for COVID-19 by Oct. 31, or undergo regular testing, to protect Manitoba against a fourth COVID-19 wave, Premier Brian Pallister announced today… The new public health orders will require all designated provincial public service workers who have ongoing contact with vulnerable populations, especially children, to be fully immunized or submit to testing up to three times per week. Designated workers include: educational workers including teachers, school and educational support staff, practicum students, bus drivers and custodial staff”.
- Please see the Division webpage for the “Welcoming Our Students Back” information.
There is a comprehensive list of Covid 19 Protocols, and other pertinent information there.
- When the Division receives direction from the province regarding the vaccine mandate and Covid testing for non-vaccinated staff, we will post it on the MANTE website.
- Sept 30 is a statutory holiday in recognition of The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
- I will be fulfilling my duties as MANTE president on Days 1, 3, & 5. You can contact me by phone, 204-831-2397 email email@example.com, or the division email.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
Stay safe and well and have a great school year.
