“It’s not the EME pre-COVID,” Millar begins saying in the video. “We do have some new structures in place.”

The three-part video series shows where parents can drop kids in the morning and how students will enter a classroom.

Masks are not mandatory, but Millar explains some may wish to wear them.

“So remember you could see your friends or staff wearing a mask – don’t be frightened,” he said.

Watch the series of videos below.
