Containment control

By Paul Wadsworth

Thank you for keeping students home when they have cold or flu like symptoms and undertaking testing for COVID-19 – albeit made trickier with seasonal allergies of late.

Everyone’s efforts are appreciated, particularly with exams underway and more scheduled in the coming weeks for Year 11 and then Year 10 students.

Containment remains an effective control against an outbreak in a school community, so please have children with symptoms tested, and if positive for COVID-19, keep them home until all acute symptoms (runny nose, sore throat, cough and fever) have cleared.

On returning to campus, Middle and Senior School students need to wear a mask while indoors for 7 days from the start of symptoms or their positive test, whichever is earliest, and we encourage younger ones to do likewise.
