Essential services workers
Parents who are providing essential services or are required to attend their workplace and do not have any other appropriate supervision for their Cycle 2 &/or Cycle 3 child/ren, can bring their children to school. These students will be supervised as they engage with their remote learning program.
It is very important that parents:
notify us immediately if their child tests positive to COVID-19
keep their child/ren home if:
- they are unwell
- they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms (even if symptoms are mild)
- any other member of the household has COVID-19
- they are a close contact of a person who has COVID-19 and are required to quarantine.
- notify us immediately if their child tests positive to COVID-19
Students in Cycle 4 will be required to wear a face mask while indoors at school.
We strongly encourage students in Years 3 to 6 to wear a face mask while indoors at school.
Parents who enter the school grounds must wear a mask at all times.
Physical distancing requirements will continue
We ask that parents and carers continue to limit their time within the school grounds. Please drop your child off at the gate if at all possible. Parents are asked to promptly exit the school as soon as is practicable after drop off and not to congregate in the courtyard.
We ask that parents continue not to enter the classrooms before, during or after school.
Preschool parents/carers need to drop their child off and pick them up from the Preschool so they can sign them in and out – this is a legal requirement. We ask that Preschool parents do not enter the Preschool classrooms.
Cycle 1 Primary students will continue to be taken to the gate at 3.20pm and will be supervised at the gate whilst parents collect their child from the drive through area of the car park.
We ask that parents avoid entering the school at pick up time.
Communicating with staff
If you need to communicate or speak with your child’s teacher or the office, please phone or email directly or email to arrange a meeting. All meetings between staff and parents need to be by Zoom until further notice.
Please read the letter that was sent to parents on 27th Janaury regarding what families need to do if they or their child/ren test positive to Covid.
