Our school will be open to welcome students back to onsite learning from the beginning of Term 3 – Tuesday 21 July 2020.
Students returning into residential facilities
In accordance with NSW Health advice the following additional requirements must be applied to any boarding student returning to school after travelling through, residing in or visiting any location in Victoria before returning to school:
Students who have been in Victoria must self-isolate for a period of 14 days in suitable accommodation separate from the boarding school or college from the time they have left Victoria.
Students must have a negative naso-pharyngeal swab for COVID at day 10 of isolation.
Before the school accepts the student back within the boarding facility, parents or carers will need to provide written confirmation to the school that their child has self-isolated for the full 14 day period since they were last in Victoria and returned a negative test result before leaving self-isolation.
Day students returning to school
As you would be aware the border between NSW and Victoria closed as of 12:01am 8 July 2020.
All staff and students returning from Victoria after this time must have a permit to enter NSW and are required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days.
All day students who have been in Victoria in the 14 days before the commencement of school must not attend school until they complete the 14 days self-isolation period since they left Victoria.
NSW Health has requested anyone who has been in Victoria and is unwell or has flu-like symptoms arrange to be tested through their local medical practitioner or one of the COVID-19 clinics.
Students who are unable to return to school due to the border closures or self-isolation will be supported to learn remotely.
We would like to remind our community the most important action you can take is to practise good hand hygiene and physical distancing. Our school will be vigilant in implementing these requirements to minimise the risk at school.
