Term 4, Week 7 2022

General Notices

Covid - 19 Update

While the introduction of the National Cabinet’s decision to remove isolation mandates in October brought the Victorian community much needed relief and freedom, we have begun to see a rise in Covid-19 infections due to steadfast nature of emerging Omicron subvariants. Therefore, the following is a reminder of the important measures families and our School should continue to adhere to in order to help reduce the spread of infection.

These include staying home when unwell (minimum of 5 days or as long as symptomatic), undertaking RAT when unwell or symptomatic, ensuring appropriate ventilation when indoors (via air purification and open windows and doors), and ongoing compliance with personal hygiene and infection control measures.

We ask parents and carers to continue to remain vigilant in preventing COVID-19 transmission. It is about keeping all students and staff safe, and reducing the spread of both COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases, in the remaining weeks until Christmas break.

Thank you for your continued efforts to keep our school community safe and well.
