Regular Business in the Library today…

Finally… it seems like forever this year…  A straight up regular day in the Library today.  Indeed, it’s a pretty regular business week… no closures that we’re aware of…

N.B. Ms. Arsu’s Geography classes which were supposed to be here today are re-scheduled to next Tuesday, October 10th.

Mind.. we do have a couple of special events next week – after Thanksgiving – which will have the Library closed to all bu invited students/classes at some times.

Library Access: Wednesday September 27th

Given the heat and humidity in the building… the Library will be OPEN again all day today… including for eating lunch over the lunchhour.

  While we are obviously not able to accommodate the entire school population at once, we will let in as many people as we are able to.

o   Thank you to everyone for being so helpful with keeping the Library clean and tidy the last two days under these extraordinary circumstances.

We will be moving our Grade 9 Orientation session to the back of the Library during Period 2… so please be mindful and work quietly so as not to disrupt.
