Holiday Travel- Custody Arrangements and Self-Isolation

December 18, 2020

Dear ASD-S Families,

The holidays are upon us and we know many families are looking forward to sharing this time together.

Currently, as per provincial safety guidelines, students who must travel outside of the province for the purpose of custody agreements are not required to self-isolate upon their return. As always, we ask all students, especially those travelling during the holiday break, to monitor for symptoms and contact 811 if they feel unwell. 

While self-isolation is not required for students travelling for custody agreements within Canada, those travelling for custody agreements across the Canada/US border are subject to the current Emergency Order, which requires cross-border travellers to self-isolate for 14 days upon entering Canada. Those students may not return to school until the 14 days of self-isolation are complete.

We encourage families with cross-border custody arrangements to consider this over the holidays and when planning visitations. You may wish to check the Government of Canada’s website (​) for the most up to date information, including future amendments to the Emergency Orders.

To all of our students and their families, best wishes for a safe and happy holiday,

Zoё Watson,
