Catholic Schools are following the advice of government agencies concerning how coronavirus impacts students, staff and parents.
Our focus is on minimising risk and ensuring we do all that we can to ensure our communities are safe.
Students and staff should stay away from school if they are unwell or are displaying COVID-19 symptoms. This remains the most effective control against an outbreak of COVID-19 in a school community.
It is important that parents continue to actively monitor children for any COVID-19 symptoms. If any symptoms develop (even mild symptoms) students must not attend school and should follow SA Health advice. If a positive result is advised, you will need to let the school know as soon as possible.
To protect our school communities, staff and students should note:
Maintaining good hygiene standards is a critical way to reduce the risk of infection.
All children and staff are encouraged to:
SA Health encourages parents to provide children with their own personal, labelled and named drink water bottles.
School activities have resumed with COVID safe protocols in place.
Parents are welcome on school grounds and should comply with all COVID safety requirements if need be.
Vaccination is the best way to reduce your child’s risk of becoming seriously unwell with COVID-19.
We encourage families to prioritise their child's COVID vaccination. You can learn more about vaccination on the SA Health website.
Questions or concerns should be directed to your school or college principal in the first instance.
If you or your children experience any anxiety, distress or concern in relation to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Beyond Blue offers wellbeing advice.
