Non-medical masks are a requirement for all high school students (except those with medical exemptions) as per provincial COVID-19 health and safety guidelines (see Section 6 of our Health and Safety Plan). Cedars has provided students with two re-usable masks each, and we do have disposable masks on hand for backup if they are needed.
We are finding, however, that we are currently supplying a large amount of disposable masks to students on a regular basis. In order to be good stewards of school resources, we ask both parents and students to ensure that students bring their own masks to school each day. We recommend keeping an extra mask in a backpack or locker, etc., so if a student misplaces or forgets their main mask, they have their own backup mask to use.
We appreciate your cooperation!
