Back to school
Reminder: face masks are mandatory for all high school students including those under 12, all school staff (primary and high school) and visitors including volunteers, parents, carers and contractors, unless an exception applies. Students in Years 3 to 6 will be provided with masks and encouraged to wear them when physical distancing isn't possible. www.qed.qld.gov.au/covid19/covid-safe-for-education/face-masks
Rapid antigen tests
Students can receive priority access to RATs at Queensland Health testing clinics. If your child is unwell, please keep them at home. If they become sick at school, you will be contacted to collect them and your child will receive a test to administer at home. Visit a testing clinic near you.
Visitors on school sites
When students return, we will be limiting visitors to our school, unless your child is in Kindergarten, Prep or Year 1 or experiencing vulnerabilities. Alternative drop off and pick up arrangements will be in place and face-to-face parent / teacher interviews will be limited. We appreciate your understanding and support at this time.
Excursions and camps
From 7 February – 4 March, some school activities such as camps, excursions, assemblies, performances and large gatherings will not be permitted. Other activities such as instrumental music programs, ensembles, choirs, incursions, dancing and PE classes will continue as normal. We will be in contact with you about what this means for you and your child.
Confirmed COVID-19 case
With COVID-19 prevalent in the community, please monitor your family for symptoms. If a family member is feeling unwell, get them tested and follow Queensland Health guidelines. Students and school staff will be prioritised for free rapid antigen tests (RATs) at testing clinics. www.covid19.qld.gov.au
The COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to protect
ourselves, our families and our community. It is easy and convenient for everyone to get
vaccinated. Anyone aged 5 years and over can simply walk in
to any clinic and get vaccinated. Visit the Queensland Health website for
information and locations. www.health.qld.gov.au/vaccinelocations
