International and US Student Travel to School - July, 2021
Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we approach the upcoming school year we anticipate the possibility of more changes to the international travel and quarantine requirements for fully vaccinated travelers into Canada, and will update our families as we have more information.
Below you will see the most up to date information we have been given by the federal government:
Beginning July 5, *fully vaccinated travellers, with the right of entry to Canada, will no longer be subject to the Federal requirement of quarantine, or the requirement to go into a 3-day CD government-hotel quarantine stays, or to submit a Day 8 COVID-19 test.
If you meet the requirements for fully vaccinated travellers to Canada AND you have a valid study permit to attend an approved Designated Learning Institution (Brentwood qualifies), you may be exempt from quarantine requirements.
Fully vaccinated travellers will still need to complete both pre and on-arrival COVID-19 testing.
Travellers must submit their vaccination information through the ArriveCan app, before arriving at the Canadian border, and bring the original documents, certified vaccination documents and translated versions to present to Canadian Border Security Agent (CBSA) officers.
At this time, for not fully vaccinated travellers, there are no changes to current quarantine measures.
*Being fully vaccinated currently means that a person has both shots of one of the approved vaccines for Canada. ( Pfizer, Moderna, Astra-Zeneca, Johnson and Johnson).

Arrival & Quarantine
These changes will impact the planning and arrival of some of our students and families and we are thankful that fully vaccinated students will not be subjected to the 14 day quarantine as we experienced last year.
For students who are not yet vaccinated, we will continue to offer a quarantine hotel option that will begin the 24th of August.
