Dear parents and carers,

As you may have learnt this morning, the lockdown in Sydney has been extended until midnight July 16th .

Please complete this survey as soon as possible to help us plan for next week: https://forms.gle/jPwdGrjM9r6eUbjX6

 The advice from the Department is as follows:

For the first week of Term 3, students in Greater Sydney – that is, those LGAs currently affected by NSW Health stay-at-home orders and including Greater Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour – will be learning from home. This will stay in place until Friday 16 July.

Our schools will remain open for the students and families who need it, although parents will be encouraged to keep their children at home. There will only be minimal staff supervision and schools will provide one unit of work for students, whether they are learning from home or in the classroom.

For those on site, all staff in all school settings and students from year 7 upwards will be required to wear masks. This is consistent with current requirements for masks to be worn in office and workplace settings and on transport services across Greater Sydney.

All staff and any visitors to school must use the QR codes to check in and out of school premises. Any student, teacher or staff member with any symptoms, or who is feeling unwell, should not attend school and should take a COVID test immediately. Anyone who has been off sick from school will be required to return a negative COVID test before being permitted to return to school. Students and staff who have attended any venue of concern identified by NSW Health should follow NSW Health advice.

Regards,

Lisa Haller | Principal
