On August 24th, the Province of British Columbia re-implemented a provincial-wide mask mandate. This updated policy includes all school grades 4 through 12. Notre Dame will adhere to this policy.

No matter your specific stance on wearing masks, come the first day of school, a mask mandate will be enforced at Notre Dame. If you are visiting the school before September 8th, then wearing a mask will be in place starting August 25th.
During the Quarters system last year, wearing a mask seemed to provide the extra level of safety we all were hoping for; so continuing on that path seems logical. I, for one, was extremely impressed with the cooperation level of all the students and applauded their efforts in being safe.

I have no doubt that this year we will have similar results. All staff, students and parents want to have a safe return to school; following all provincial guidelines will help in that endeavour.
