From Monday 18th October students in Years 3 to 6 are required to wear a mask when they are inside the school buildings. Please make sure that your child’s mask is named. It is an obvious risk for one child to pick up and wear another child’s mask.
We encourage you to pack a spare, clean mask in a zip-lock bag in your child’s school bag in case the mask you send them to school in gets wet or dirty.
We anticipate that there will be some exemptions for a limited number of students. Once the detail of this information is available I will communicate this with our school community via Sentral.
As present, children under the age of 12 are the only part of our society who do not have access to a vaccine. The primary purpose of the mask is to protect the children. A secondary purpose is to help limit the spread of any infection by a child who is unknowingly positive.
