School Screening Tool

Please use the Ontario Daily School Screening to answer the “should my child go to school” questions – as Educators, we are not able to provide medical opinion or advice — this tool provides many answers to your questions!

Still have questions? Please contact Public Health directly at 519-822-2715 ext 7006

Our Faculty, Administration Board, and Volunteer Committee Members worked through the summer months of 2021 to develop a Safe Return Plan (link) created August 2021, that would align with the Ministry of Health, Ontario Government, and local Wellington-Dufferin-Public Health Unit, all while re-imagining what unique opportunities we can offer at Trillium and build toward an even stronger future. The plan was developed based on research and evidence-based practice in risk mitigation, while keeping the core values of Waldorf Education and Trillium Waldorf School in mind.

The 2020-21 school year was a time of continual change, though our commitment to our school and our families has not waivered. Our Pandemic Task Force transitioned into the Joint Health & Safety Committee, and this smaller group of dedicated faculty, staff and volunteers continue to stay abreast of the updates from Public Health and the Ministry, and revise our policies and procedures to support the health and well-being of staff and students. Please see our COVID-19 Response Summary (link), created August 2021, for at-a-glance updates.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has been with us for more than a year now, and will most likely continue to be for some time, we recognize that these challenges will one day be behind us. By setting our sight on the future, we are poised to make meaningful decisions now that we can build upon tomorrow.
