Message to Parents/Carers

Tasmania’s Public Health authorities have extended the current directions in place for people who are in Tasmania who have been in Victoria (excluding Melbourne Airport) and now, South Australia on or since 8 July. This group of people are required to continue to wear a facemask (if over the age of 12) and limit their movement in the community for only essential purposes until 11:59pm Friday 23 July (subject to further extension) or until 14 days have passed since you arrived.

For our staff and students, this means those who have been in Victoria (excluding transitioning through Melbourne Airport) and now also South Australia on or since 8 July are NOT to attend school for the remainder of the school week (Friday 23 July inclusive).

For those impacted students in years K-10, schools will be making contacted to check in, and as appropriate offering support with student learning. Don’t forget that Learning at Home resources are available at: https://www.education.tas.gov.au/learning-at-home/.

Impacted students in Years 11 and 12, are asked to continue to stay in contact with their school/college to enable ongoing participation in their learning.

This is a reminder that although Tasmania is currently tracking well, thanks to everyone’s commitment to doing the right thing, it is important that each one of us remains vigilant and continues to abide by the Public Health guidelines. This includes:

  • maintaining physical distancing;
  • practising good hygiene and washing your hands;
  • getting tested if you have even the mildest of symptoms;
  • keep students at home if they are unwell;
  • downloading and using the Check In TAS app whenever required, including when you enter school sites - more information on the app can be found here: https://www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au/check-in-tas

Lockdown Practice

Dear Parent / Carer,

 On Wednesday morning all students and staff will practice a Lockdown procedure. This procedure is a requirement by the Department of Education and our responsibility to ensure that we are prepared for any unsafe or threatening behaviour on the school site.  Threats at DoE sites includes any situation where a threat arises at or very close to our site e.g suspicios person near the site, aggressive animal or intruder.

‘Shelter in Place’ is the most common response strategy used at our sites. Examples of Shelter in Place actions include closing and locking doors /windows and moving to a safe central place in each classroom or learning space until the all clear is given.

 Students will be advised of the practice procedure prior to the event so as not to cause any anxiety or distress.

If you have any further questions please contact the school.

Regards,
Linda Heerey
Principal
