All Students: Your yearbook team needs you to upload photos using the “Upload It” app from Friesens. Our school code is 272744. We also need Grade reps in Grade 10, 11, and 12 to register with Mr. Wilson and build pages for your respective grades.
Here is your daily reminder to keep physical distances, mask in common areas and hallways, and practice good hand hygiene.
We also have some new protocols to observe:
- Masks are to be worn in classrooms unless the student is sitting or standing at their designated seat.
- Staff members follow this guidance as well, wearing their mask unless sitting or standing in their teaching space/seat (i.e. where you normally stand/sit to teach or work).
- Masks are to be worn by all entering and leaving the classroom.
