High Schools Moves to Online Learning

by Prairie Spirit School Division

Both Martensville and Warman High Schools have decided to move to online learning as of Thursday, January 20th due to a high number of positive COVID cases.

The Prairie Spirit School Division provided a letter to parents and students informing them that this decision was put in place to help reduce the risk of high school students missing the scheduled final assessments that will be taking place later this month.

Online learning will be in place from January 20th to January 25th inclusive, within in-person learning resuming on Wednesday, January 26th.

The letter states that by moving to online learning, it will minimize the chance that students will be exposed to COVID-19 and have their final assessments interrupted, as well as support teachers to be available for final assessments with their students without disruption due to illness or self-isolation. Staff will continue to work in schools during this time, and both schools will remain open.

“Teachers will be communicating with students to share details for learning from home and preparing for final assessments,” the letter explained.

Extra-curricular activities for both schools will be paused until Tuesday, February 1st.
