Any student who shows flu-like symptoms will be sent home. Parents/carers must not send sick students to school. Even if you think it is a cold - stay at home to protect your peers and community. We are also entering flu season, please consider vulnerable members of the community before exposing them to viruses.
Bring back your devices
If you were loaned a laptop and/or internet dongle please return them to school on your first day back. You can drop devices at the front office and ensure your name is marked off.
All students should be at school unless:
They have a medical certificate which states
that they are unable to return to school due to
an ongoing medical condition
They are currently unwell.
Students who have a medical certificate to
stay at home will be supported to learn from
home in line with regular procedures if they are
able to. These regular procedures are different
to what was offered during the learning from
home period. If you require work to be provided
to your child whilst they are at home due to an
underlying health condition, you should contact
the school for assistance.
Please note, students who live with a family
member in one of the categories identified as
being at increased risk by the AHPPC, should
attend school unless a medical practitioner
advises otherwise in writing.
If your child is unwell, do not send them to
school. If they are unwell at school you or your
nominated emergency contact will need to
collect them immediately. Please make sure your
contact details are up to date.
If a student is absent without a medical reason
