COVID-19 Protocols at Bronte College

Effective May 16, 2023, the COVID-19 vaccine and protocol requirement will be paused. Bronte College will continue to monitor and respond to new developments and may reinstate the vaccine requirement on short notice should circumstances warrant. We continue to strongly recommend Covid-19 vaccination as an important step in protecting public health and encourage all of our students and staff to stay up to date with their vaccinations.

At Bronte College, our priority is the health and safety of our community. Since the beginning of the Pandemic, we have implemented numerous safety measures to protect our staff and students including mask and temperature mandates, increased sanitization, a new HEPA air filtration system, safe, secure airport transportation, quarantine on campus as required, an on-campus nurse, and more. When necessary, staff and students will be asked to take a Rapid Antigen Test to help ensure the safety of our community.

Enhancements that have been made to the school building to ensure the safety of students and staff will remain in place, such as;

  1. Plexiglass barriers where they are required. 
  2. HEPA air filters around the school in classrooms and offices, as well as increased the frequency of changing filters for the ventilation systems.
  3. Step N Pull touchless bathroom doors for less shared contact, and water bottle refill stations for student and staff use.
  4. Increased the daily cleaning schedules of the school building and added additional sanitization stations around campus for student convenience.

Should  circumstances require, Bronte College will follow the below Campus Protocols: 

  1. Students and staff will be requested to wear 3-ply disposable face masks in classrooms. 
  2. Visitors to campus will require an appointment and need to present Proof of Covid-19 Vaccine, as well as wear a mask, and complete a self-assessment questionnaire.
  3. Staff and students will be required to complete a self-assessment questionnaire each day.

Additional Student Protective Policy measures may also take place if required:

  1. Boarding students will be restricted to campus. Outside breaks will be organized and supervised. Any student leaving Bronte College property at any time during the shutdown will be put into quarantine for 14 days.
  2. Classes will be held online through TEAMS.
  3. Students must refrain from close contact with other students and practice the 2-metre social distancing policy, including at mealtimes.
