MANTE Staff,

All Violent Incident Reports are to now be completed online.

A link to the new online form can be located in First Class in the Forms folder in the Division News conference.
Following a violent incident, the MANTE staff member is asked to complete and submit the online Violent Incident Report form. Once submitted, you will receive a copy of the report via email for your records. Additionally, copies of the completed form will be immediately forwarded to the following parties:
Human Resources Department: Cindy Labaty
MANTE President: Joan McEachern
Superintendent’s Department: Mike Wake
Your School Administrator
Upon receiving the report, the school administrator is expected to advise the staff member of the actions taken within 10 days.  If this does not happen or, “We are taking care of it” which is not an acceptable response to actions taken, contact MANTE at and we will follow up.  We will also follow-up if there are multiple reports with no changes happening.


EI Reporting: There is no longer any need for a reference code when applying for EI. Please read instructions here

Health and Welfare
A reminder that we send donations, flowers, etc. when there is a death of a spouse, parent, or child: when someone had a baby, or when someone has been off sick for 2 weeks or more. Cards are sent for weddings and the death of other family members. Please contact Maggi Sawchuk at for health and welfare. This includes over the summer break. Maggi will be checking her email regularily.

*Remember to use your personal day this school year if you still haven’t. Otherwise it’s use it or lose it.
