– Stay home and get tested if you feel ill.
– Screen every day for symptoms before attending child care, day camps, or school (using the COVID Screening Tool).
– Practice good hand hygiene habits, masking, and physical distancing.
– Refer to Ontario.ca/covidresponse to learn what public health measures are in place in our community.
All students, faculty, and staff must screen themselves as well as household members for symptoms each day prior to attending school.
The onus during COVID-19 for safe health practices and for safely entering the building rests with parents as determined by the Ministry of Education, Toronto Public Health, and the Government of Ontario. All parents must sign Waldorf Academy’s COVID Agreement and Declaration waiver where parents agree to perform this daily screening assessment.
The Toronto Public Health Screening Tool for students (as of September 6, 2022):
Symptoms of the Coronavirus range from common to severe respiratory illness and include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. If you have recently traveled internationally and are experiencing these symptoms, avoid contact with others, see a health care provider, and tell them the countries you visited. You should also contact the school.
Toronto Public Health has a call center to address questions from the public. If you have questions about what is happening in Toronto, how the virus is spread, and what to do if you have symptoms, please call 416-338-7600.
Given the complex and rapidly evolving situation, we encourage you to visit Health Canada and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) websites.
If you hear from a student or family who is in distress and needs immediate assistance, or if you require immediate assistance yourself, we encourage you to refer to the telephone and online mental health supports and service listed below:
