COVID-19 Updates

It goes without saying that the COVID-19 global pandemic caused all of us to make changes to how we conduct ourselves in daily life. Turnbull School successfully navigated this school year by making many thoughtful changes to our procedures, school facilities and schedules to help create a safer, more nurturing and enjoyable environment for the students and staff. Mask wearing, social distancing and frequent hand washing formed the basis of the many enhancements put in place to help combat the spread of this virus. Although the majority of our students attend school in-person each day, several families opted for their children to “Learn from Home”. These children received live-streaming of their academic classes throughout the week. Time was also made for these students to connect with their teachers to help build rapport and ensure curriculum expectations were being met.


Turnbull School is actively preparing for the 2021-2022 academic year, with the hope of returning to a much more “normal” school setting. We continue to rely on OPH and the government of Ontario for the most up to date COVID-19 safety requirements and protocols.
