On Friday, March 12, the provincial government issued Manitoba Education Covid-19 Bulletin #9
that outlined changes to public health restrictions in place on singing and playing of wind instruments in kindergarten to Grade 12 schools.
The required protocols have been communicated with principals and music specialists to ensure a safe return to singing and the playing of wind instruments. As the weather continues to warm up, the use of outdoor spaces will be expanded and prioritized.
Singing and the playing of wind instruments may begin in designated indoor spaces as the review of the teaching spaces and public safety protocols has been approved by the LRSD Senior Leadership Team.
The education system continues to be in the Orange: Restricted level on the Manitoba Pandemic Response System plan. Our collective vigilance and focus on safety will continue to be prioritized as changes to public health restrictions are directed to schools and school divisions by the provincial government.
