COVID-19 parent letter

 

Dear parents/caregivers,

Today the Premier announced that schools, preschools and children’s centres will reopen to all students tomorrow (Wednesday 28 July).

As a result, our school will be open.

We will not be offering an alternative home-based learning program unless your child is impacted by SA Health directed quarantine orders, p[lease let us know if this is the case for your family.

As the Chief Public Health Officer said, just because the hard lockdown is being lifted does not mean that the risks associated with COVID-19 have passed.

As a result, we will:

  • minimise the number of people coming and going from our site. Wherever possible, please drop and collect your child at the gate and maintain the appropriate physical distance from other adults
  • postpone all school events, excursions and camps for the next week
  • require all staff to wear masks when indoors. Please note that staff will not have to wear masks while teaching or working directly with students.

On a primary school site, students can choose to wear masks but are not expected to. They can wear their own cloth masks and we also have supplies of surgical masks available if they want them.

Your child might have questions about wearing masks. It’s important we continue to follow SA Health advice and your continued cooperation is greatly appreciated as we help students and staff with this necessary change.

Thank you very much for your support during the lockdown. We look forward to having your child back at school tomorrow.

 

Regards,

Lyndsey
