COVID-19 Information for Term 3
Dear parents and carers,
Welcome to Term 3! I hope that you found some time over the school holiday break to connect with family and friends.
This communication is an update on some changes to the COVID-19 Department of Education operating guidelines for Term 3.
To ensure that we maintain a safe learning environment in our school, we ask that you all continue to practise and promote good hygiene and respect the guidelines we have set in place, including visitors to schools. More information is available by clicking on the link below. https://education.nt.gov.au/publications/information-for-term-3-2020
If your child is unwell they must remain at home and parents/carers should notify the school as soon as possible.
You are also asked to notify the school if your child has been directed by the Northern Territory Government to self-quarantine at home or enter mandatory quarantine at a government facility. The school will provide the student with learning from home materials to ensure that they can continue to learn during this period.
Students who have been required to quarantine will need to provide the school with a letter of clearance from the Northern Territory Government, prior to their return to face to face learning.
This will assist schools to minimise the risk of the spread of the virus and give reassurance to other students, staff, and the community, that it is safe for students who have been quarantined to return.
Please note that all school staff who have been required to undertake quarantine will also provide the same clearance letter before they return to school.
If you have any specific questions or concerns related to your child’s individual situation, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 8999 1222.
Jill Hazeldine, Principal
