Need To Know
An important message from Mr. Banerjee
As of Tuesday, April 6, all senior students will return to in-person classes. It is more important than ever that we are vigilant with health and safety protocols. I would ask for everyone's cooperation in adhering to Selwyn's health and safety guidelines issued in September, specifically the appropriate use of mask wearing. To ensure the safety for all, students who do not adhere to our health and safety guidelines will be removed from classes and/or school activities. We look forward to seeing all the Selwyn senior students back together!
