First week of school info & schedule 2021-2022

Dear Mount Doug Community,

Welcome!  We are so excited to be welcoming back past and new students to our school community.  While the last year and a half have been challenging and far from normal we are looking forward to a wonderful 2021-2022 school year.  We are pleased to welcome Nancy Archer as our new Vice Principal this year, coming from Lambrick Park Secondary.

We have been busy putting together the safety protocols, structures, and plans to protect the students and staff within our school community.  The Ministry of Health has laid out a series of health and safety protocols to reduce the risk of communicable disease within schools.  We will continue to be fluid and flexible as the needs change.  It is important to be reminded that these safety plans are in place to ensure the health and safety of all students, staff, and families.

Health and Safety

Please see the complete district plan:

Communicable Disease Prevention Plan – School Site Procedures

Daily Health Check

Students and staff must stay home if they are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19.  It is the responsibility of parents to assess their students daily for symptoms of COVID-19 prior to sending them to school.

Further information:

Hand Hygiene

Hand sanitizer and hand washing on entering the school and classrooms.


Mask wearing indoors for all K-12 Staff, visitors, parents, and students in grades 4-12, including at their desks and on school buses.

Physical Distancing

Students and staff will be reminded to respect the personal space of others.  Cohorts are no longer required, however maintaining distance will still be encouraged where possible.

Overall Health

  • Cleaning and disinfecting to be continued as previously
  • Building air ventilation has been revised and updated as needed

Mental Health

Mental health education and support will be a focus for the school year.  As a school community we will be completing the UBC Mental Health Literacy Program with monthly education sessions and learning.  Please see the current district Snapshot for information, strategies, and resources.  These will be sent home monthly.

September 2021 Snapshot

Preparing for School: Resilience, Connection and Skills for a Successful September


Grade 9s will be given a copy of their schedules in homeroom on Tuesday. Homeroom List 2021 – 22

Grade 10 – 12s please access your timetable through the student portal.

Timetable Changes

If there is a problem with your timetable, please email your counsellor with the information and change request with reason for the change.  They will work through their emails and call you from class to discuss as needed.  Please attend all classes on your timetable so they can find you. Many of you may already be on waitlists if you did not get a requested course and counsellors  will need time to work through these lists. Please be patient as they work through a large volume of requests and understand that any changes are subject to space and availability of the course.

Ms Jory:

  • Last names beginning with A, B, Piu to Z and fee paying International Students

Ms Lindsay:

  • Last names beginning with C to Pik


Student locker use will be allowed this year.  More information is to come on how to request a locker.  Please be mindful not to congregate in large groups in the hallways in front of lockers so other students can safely access their locker.
