Notice of Reopening & School Updates
Wednesday, June 2, 2021

Dear Friends,

We are encouraged by the Government of Nova Scotia’s reopening plan entitled “Reopening Safely with COVID-19”, wherein “Phase 1” begins today, Wednesday, June 2. With respect to “Phase 1” our School has reopened and students and visitors are now welcome to stop by our office with a maximum of two visitors inside at one time.

“Phase 2” should begin within the following 2-4 weeks. Inasmuch as our School has spacious teaching studios and limited class sizes, 10 including the Instructor(s), our Summer 2021 courses can readily meet the “Phase 2” guidelines. Therefore we are hopeful that we can commence our Summer courses on July 5th pursuant to our published schedule. In making this announcement we wish to confirm that we shall continue to adhere strictly to the Public Health directives.

At this time, the “Atlantic Bubble” is not set to reopen until “Phase 3”. Currently, registered students from outside of Nova Scotia will not be able to attend our courses without first self-isolating within Nova Scotia for 14 days prior to the start date of your course. That is subject to change— everything is subject to the continuing decrease in cases and increase in vaccinations.

Art cannot be contained! We are grateful that together, Nova Scotians continue to confront the COVID-19 virus. With this team effort we shall prevent a further wave. We are grateful for the Public Health authorities whose leadership has made it possible for our Province to reopen.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and see you this summer!

The Honourable Wilfred P. Moore, Q.C., LL.D., Volunteer Chair
