Covid-19 Pandemic

St. Mary's Academy is focused on providing and sustaining a clean, healthy, and safe school environment for students, faculty, and staff while we navigate the Covid-19 pandemic. We have in place a SAFE SMA structure that has been formulated based on guidelines from Manitoba Education and Training and Manitoba Public Health. We will apply the same level of caution to all school-sanctioned events and activities. With the evolving nature of the pandemic, SMA is prepared to update/revise these measures and/or pivot to a different plan of events based on Government guidelines.
