On August 4, the province announced mandatory masks for students in grades 4-12.
As such, students writing August diploma exams within EIPS now must enter the building wearing a non-medical mask or face-covering. Once seated, and the exam begins, students can remove the mask, if they choose. However, once the exam is complete, the student must again wear the mask or face-covering before leaving their work area. If, for some reason, a student arrives at the school without a mask or face-covering, Next Step will provide a disposable mask for the duration of the exam.
