COVID 19 is a highly infectious virus that we need to treat with the greatest respect to keep our community safe. It is important that we all follow the advice of the Chief Health Officer. If a child feels unwell with one or more of the symptoms listed in the DHHS advice, you should get tested.
If the result is positive, please contact me immediately firstname.lastname@example.org . This will then be managed by the team in Melbourne who can access tests results and other actions being taken by DHHS so that they can advise the school of the appropriate actions to take.
These are complex decisions which can take time to work through so that the correct decision is communicated. DHHS, DET and the school take the importance of maintaining people’s privacy very seriously. Information communicated to the community will be limited to what needs to happen. Please be assured that every consideration is given to all aspects of maintaining the students’ and the community’s safety.
Please be patient waiting for information. When the school receives information from the Education Department we will communicate this to the community immediately. It is essential that we communicate the correct information even if this takes some time to get right. Information coming from the school, which has come directly from Melbourne, is the only source of information on which you can rely to be completely correct.
