COVID-19: Martensville and Warman High Schools move to online learning – Saskatoon
Two high schools in the Prairie Spirit School Division (PSSD) in Saskatchewan will transition to online learning beginning Thursday, January 20 due to rising COVID-19 cases. Students at Martensville High School and Warman High School will temporarily learn through distance learning.
The PSSD sent a letter to parents and guardians informing them of the decision.
“We are currently experiencing a high number of positive COVID-19 test results in both [schools],” read the letter.
The PSSD said the temporary shift from in-person to remote learning will minimize the risk of students being exposed to COVID-19 and having their final assessments interrupted.
The move is also intended to “help teachers be available for final assessments with their students without disruption due to illness or self-isolation,” the statement said.
The PSSD said all extracurricular activities will be suspended until February 1. The school division said all school staff will continue to work as both schools will remain open.
In-person classes will resume on Wednesday, January 26.
