WMI continues to monitor the COVID-19 Situation

As we continue to see provincial restriction being slowly lifted and organizations opening doors under strict guidelines, WMI continues in its effort to ensure the safety of staff and student as we anticipate a return to school in September 2020.

We are looking at a New Norm when school resumes and as a result, we have taken steps in hopes of reducing physical contact both in classes and in high traffic areas around the school.

Amongst others, students should expect the following changes when classes resume; reduced classroom size, staggered start and break times,  limited access to offices, closure of certain high traffic areas, etc.

We continue to monitor the situation and review the most up-to-date information and recommendations available through regional and provincial medical health authorities.

This unprecedented situation requires an unprecedented response and we look forward to a safe return to school in September.
