Manitoba’s state of emergency could possibly extend the province-wide school suspension for the remainder of the year.

MVSD Superintendent Dan Ward says an extension hasn't been made yet, but it is a possibility.

“As a school division, we are wrapping our heads around the fact that this could very well be longer than April 9th. In the coming days we should know more from the department.”

 Details on how classes would continue in the event of an extension are still being discussed.

”There’s a particular emphasis on students in high school, earning credits, and those that are looking towards graduation.”

 Despite the suspension of classes, students are still being provided with work.

MVSD is holding a meeting on Tuesday 24th to discuss updated plans from the province.
