Dear Senior School Families,

The school is alive with the voices of our new students today and we are so thrilled to have everyone back tomorrow, September 9. Faculty and staff have been working hard to prepare the school and classrooms for our orientation week; from September 9-11, students will be focusing on connecting with their cohort, learning the health and safety protocols, and enjoying local OEE activities.

As per BC Ministry guidelines, students, faculty and staff are assigned to the following cohorts:

  • Grades 6, 7, and 8 will be individual cohorts by grade
  • Grades 9 and 10 will be in one cohort
  • Grades 11 and 12 will be in one cohort

As indicated in the Restart Plan, parents are asked to drop their child(ren) off/pick-up at the times listed below. Siblings are welcome to be dropped off at the same time and supervision will be provided in each cohort space.
