Happy New Year and Welcome 2020!

From SEASAC Math, Art and MUN festivals, to AMIS Choir, STEM Robotics and numerous SEASAC sports tournaments, our student-athletes are quickly preparing for the busy weeks ahead.

Gym Acoustics Project
Over the winter break, an acoustics project was started in the gym to help improve the sound quality and dampen the noise on both courts. In order to complete the project, we will close one side of the gym at a time over the next two-to-three weeks. Once court #1 is complete, court #2 will be started. Basketball practices/games, PE classes, and ASA schedules will be modified to enable this project to be completed in a timely manner.
Fitness Room Access
Starting this week, the doors from the main gym into the fitness room will no longer be used as a fitness room entrance. All pass holders who are not part of a PE class will need to use the side entrance to access the fitness room.
Please keep the following rules in mind when accessing the facility:
The fitness room is open 24 hours a day to anyone with an ID card that has been approved for fitness room use. To get your ID card updated you need to print out and sign a waiver and bring it to the security office for the attention of John Whalen. Once approved your card will be updated and you can use it to enter the fitness room.
Please note that Monday-Friday from 7:30am-4:00pm the fitness room is open to staff and students only.
The fitness room will remain open 24-hours a day during school holidays. The fitness room will be closed on all national holidays when the school is closed.
