Manitoba is planning the return to in-class learning in September for all students while continuing
to follow public health advice throughout the school year and for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

IHMS will continue to follow up-to-date public health orders and guidance with safety being of the highest priority. The 'IHMS September, 2020 Re-entry Plan' will be posted on the school website the week of August 17, 2020.

“Let us be alert and protect ourselves and one another, but especially let us remember that the
best protection from all epidemics is faith in the Lord and acts of love, for when we think about and
strive to help those around us, God Himself looks after us!”
Sr. Sofija Lebedowicz, SSMI - General Superior
