COVID-19 Update – Arrangements for Wednesday 28 July

Dear families, we have been advised that at this stage, we can expect to reopen public schools, preschools and children’s centres to all students from Wednesday 28 July, except for Gawler & District B-12 College.

Learning at Home will only be needed for students that are required to self-isolate as directed by SA Health. Please contact your child’s teacher to let them know if this impacts your family and you haven’t already got in touch.

Some staff have been required to quarantine after visiting exposure sites and their return to site dates may also occur after Wednesday 28th.

OSHC will also resume providing care for all children in line with the below restrictions.

Access to school and preschool grounds

We must continue to minimise parents, volunteers, and non-urgent service providers entering the site.  Please drop off at the classroom door and not inside the classrooms. Any parent teacher meetings should be held online or by phone.

Facilities management, maintenance and construction can continue at all sites.

Assemblies and events

All whole school assemblies, performances or events should be cancelled or postponed.

Single year level assemblies can continue where required.

Camps and excursions

All excursions and camps (intrastate and interstate) must be postponed or cancelled.

Sport

Intraschool sports days can continue, providing attendance is limited to the student and staff body (ie no parents/carers to attend).

SAPSASA and interschool sporting events, carnivals and trials should be postponed.

Sport and physical education confined to the school’s own site can continue.

Physical distancing

School staff should continue to practice physical distancing from other adults at all times, including when in the staff room.

Support Services

Student Support Services will continue to provide services to children’s centres, preschools and schools.
