Physical Distancing Within Schools

We continue to encourage staff, parents and other adult visitors to observe physical distancing measures by not congregating in areas inside or around the school. Our existing arrangements to practice physical distancing and minimise interaction of students and adults within the school grounds will continue until further notice.

These measures include:

  • restricting adult access to school grounds (including visitors and parents).
  • supervision at school gates, including during drop off and pick up times.
  • minimising adult access to office environments and recommending contact be made to the school via electronic or telecommunication methods.

Please continue to ask your children to:

  • wash their hands regularly with soap and water, particularly before and after eating, and after going to the toilet;
  • use alcohol-based hand sanitiser if soap is unavailable;
  • cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of their elbow;
  • dispose of used tissues in the bin immediately;
  • apply social distancing as far as possible at school.

If your child develops flu like symptoms, please:​

  • keep your child at home and seek advice about undergoing COVID testing
  • contact your doctor or contact 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84) immediately
  • ​call ahead to the medical centre or doctor’s surgery, advising of your child’s symptoms​
