Yearbook Club desperately needs your photos from the Semi-Formal. If you have some good ones to share, please get them to Mr. Balsom or Lauren Anderson as soon as possible.

MATINEE DISRUPTIONS
Another matinee performance today. If you have a locker in the Art hallway or in the hallway outside of the Dance Studio you will be allowed to go to your lockers first thing in the morning.  You must take EVERYTHING you will need for the ENTIRE DAY.  You are allowed to carry a backpack and wear a coat to class on matinee days.  You will be allowed to go to your locker at the END OF THE DAY to get ready to go home.  AT NO OTHER TIME DURING THE DAY will you be allowed to access your locker.

Second, if you are travelling to the GYM, MUSIC ROOMS, TECH ROOM, or THE LIBRARY LEARNING COMMONS you will have to travel outside.  You can use the stairwell to the Courtyard doors or the side front door to access these areas. The Art Hallway, the Front Foyer and the Main Office hallway are OUT OF BOUNDS all day. The Cafeteria will be OPEN all day.  Your travelling around the building will be different on Matinee days.  We expect you will understand that this is necessary and show patience and understanding.  Show years are an important part of Laura Secord. Teachers are asked to please review Matinee Day changes with your classes.
