Should there be a confirmed case of COVID-19 within our community, Trafalgar will follow the appropriate steps to disseminate the information as set out by the Durham Region Health Department (DRHD). In accordance with the Ontario Ministry of Education directive, the School will notify the Ministry of Education of the COVID-19 case(s) and post this information on the School’s public website here.  Additional information on the appropriate steps to disseminate the information can be found in the FAQ section of our website.

    We know our community is resourceful and resilient, and while apart we are committed to finding new ways and opportunities to come together to support one another in the spirit of the Trafalgar sisterhood. Trafalgar believes in creating a strong sense of community for students, families and alumnae.

    Guiding Principles

    During this time of challenge and change, we remain committed to our values of:

    • Determination;
    • Imagination;
    • Resilience;
    • Kindess; and
    • Insight.

    In planning for our return to school, we are guided by the following principles:

    • The health, safety and emotional wellbeing of our students, staff, faculty, and community is paramount. As such we will meet or exceed government and public health guidelines concerning safety and support in schools and in the workplace;
    • School spirit is an expression of our shared identity. Even in the face of adversity, we commit to celebrating our history, our traditions and the Trafalgar sisterhood;
    • We will strengthen our community through acts of kindness, consideration and care for one another;
    • We will be prepared to move to a distance learning environment quickly and with minimal disruption to learning should the Ministry of Education or Public Health order school closures in the region; and
    • We recognize the year will bring unforeseen challenges. We will communicate our concerns and address each challenge with respect, honesty and transparency, seeking solutions that serve our community.
