Need To Know
An important message from Mr. Banerjee
I'm writing to follow up on Premier Legault's announcement regarding the return of Secondary III, IV and IV students to full-time in-person classes as of Monday, March 29. Please note to ensure a smooth transition back to in-person classes, the boys will continue with their hybrid schedule from March 29 until April 1 as we prepare our building and adjust our curriculum planning in order to welcome back our boys full-time. As of Tuesday, April 6, all senior boys 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 boys back together!
