Public Health Guidelines

Dear Families,

We all have a role to play in keeping our school and community safe. We thank you for continuing to keep following public health guidelines to help lower the spread of the virus.
As we work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we need you to keep your children home if they are feeling unwell.

Please closely monitor the health of everyone in your family using the COVID-19 Daily Checklist.

The checklist asks:

In the past 48 hours, have you had, or are you currently experiencing:
• Cough (new or worsening)

OR two or more of the following symptoms (new or worsening):
• fever (i.e chills, sweats)
• sore throat
• runny nose/nasal congestion

If yes, please stay home and book a COVID-19 test online .

As we know, wearing a non-medical mask can also help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  A non-medical mask is most effective when it is worn properly. Please ensure you review this with your child. Teachers will also be reviewing how to protect ourselves and others. 

I know we can do this. By working together we can immediately interrupt the impact at our school.

If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you, Angela Yerxa-Weeks
