Return to School Plan: What You Need To Know



Trafalgar Castle School has supported the learning of girls and young women for 147 years. It has supported its community through difficult times in the past and will continue to do so today and into the future.

We are committed to keeping you up-to-date as best we can through these unprecedented times and will continue to take our lead from public health authorities as new information becomes known.

    Latest Update - March 29, 2022

    In preparation for the students’ return to school next week we have revised our post-March Break changes. Please see the highlights below and click here to view the full document. 

    Effective March 21, the mask mandate for schools and public places across the province was lifted. Under current federal mandates, masking remains mandatory at all times in public spaces for 14-days upon return from international travel. Out of an abundance of caution and recognizing that our community has a high level of travel over the March Break, Trafalgar Castle School will continue its mandatory-masking policy for all students and staff through until Thursday, April 14The policy will be reviewed at that time. Masking will not be required outdoors, during co-curricular sport or while dining. 

    January 13, 2022

    The provincial government confirmed in an announcement yesterday that all Ontario schools will be returning to in-person learning on Monday, January 17 as scheduled.

    Prior to your daughter’s return on Monday, please review the following information and instructions with your student carefully:

    RETURNING TO SCHOOL

    STEP 1:  Self-Screening 

    On Monday morning, before you leave your house, you must complete the self-screening questions on Reach. Read each question carefully. The questions have been changed by Public Health. You will not be allowed to attend school if you have even one symptom. 

    • If you do not pass the screener, do not come to school. Stay home, report your absence to Ms. Hoover, and contact Nurse Michelle for further instructions. If you have a sibling who attends school, he/she should also stay home.
    • If you pass the screener, proceed to STEP 2.

    STEP 2:  Rapid Antigen Testing

    • If you pass the screener, please complete one of the Rapid Antigen Tests provided to you before the break. Read the instructions carefully and administer the test.
    • If the test is negative, you may come to school.
    •  If the test is positive, stay home and report your absence to Ms. Hoover and contact Nurse Michelle for further instructions. If you have a sibling who attends school, he/she should also stay home.

    DAILY SCREENING

    • Every morning before you leave your house, you must complete the self-screening questions on the Reach app. Read each question carefully.
    • If you do not pass the screener, do not come to school.
    • If you have a sibling who attends school, he/she should also stay home.
    • Please report your absence to Ms. Hoover
