Schools and OSHC`s will remain open.
Teaching staff are permitted to remove their mask while teaching to help with clear communication, and instruction.
Primary school students are not required to wear masks while attending school.
Physical distancing restrictions (2m2 per person) will be in place.
Year 1 families are asked to use the outside eastern facing doors for the remainder of the week at both pick-up and drop off times. We are asking our families to please return to the routine of dropping students off to the classroom door and not entering classrooms where possible, capacity restrictions are in place.
We understand this is difficult at drop-off and pick-up times. We are strongly urging our school community to be mindful of social distancing when on school site. We also remind our families that if your child presents as unwell to please have them remain at home.
With the lock down in place we will unfortunately be required to cancel the Winter Concert planned for this Thursday 1 July 2021 and will look to reschedule this event into Term 3.
