Seven Oaks superintendent looking forward to possible Manitoba school reopenings

Some Manitoba kids may be back in school as early as June 1 — although it’ll be very different than the way they left it at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

The second phase of the province’s reopening draft plan says students may come back, in limited numbers, for one-on-one instruction and assessment.

Seven Oaks School Division superintendent Brian O’Leary told 680 CJOB that families shouldn’t be dropping their kids off at schools June 1 — or any time — until they’ve been contacted ahead of time, as not all schools and divisions have confirmed they’ll be reopening.

O’Leary said he’s looking forward to seeing kids have the chance for some degree of a return to normalcy.

“We’d like to get almost all of our students — especially the younger ones — in for some time, just to get back to school and feel optimistic about the future and a return to normal.

“We feel that’s probably good for everyone’s emotional and mental health at this point,” he said.
