Dear parents and carers,
Today the Department of Education has released updated advice regarding school programs and practices.
The updates include:
- Parents and carers are reminded not to send children to school if unwell.
- If children have flu like symptoms (fever, sore throat, persistent cough, shortness of breath), parents are expected to have children tested for COVID-19, and self-isolate until results are received.
- Families will need to provide a copy of the negative COVID-19 test result before students return to school.
- To assist us, please specify the nature of your child’s illness and whether they are being tested when sending in absence notifications.
The Department has put group singing activities, including choirs, and wind instruments (woodwind and brass) on hold for the rest of Term 3. Juggernaut Band, Training Band, Recorder Group and Choir rehearsals will be cancelled, but individual tuition for wind instruments may continue.
Thank you for your attention to the updated advice and for your ongoing support.
