Dear staff, parents and carers,

Our school has been advised of a reported case of COVID-19 within our school community.

I would like to reassure you that we took immediate action as soon as we became aware of the situation and sought advice from the Department of Education and Training and the Department of Health.

The Department of Education and Training has advised us that no action is required at this stage due to the length of time since the person who was confirmed to have COVID-19 was onsite. Our school has also been undertaking its daily cleaning including sanitising all high-touch points throughout the school. This has been endorsed by the Department of Health.

All close contacts have been identified and contacted by the school today, and this information will be forwarded to Department of Health via Department of Education. Further information regarding close contacts can be found at https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/what-do-if-you-are-close-contact#i-think-i-am-a-close-contact—what-should-i-do

Due to resourcing constraints, all Year 10 students are not required to be onsite and will move to independent learning tomorrow, Friday, 22 October 2021.

Year 11 will continue operating in line with the current advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer. Year 12 students finished formal classes today.
Staff, students and visitors to schools are reminded to stay up to date with current face mask advice. Further information can be found at www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/face-masks-in-schools.

We will still be taking every possible precaution. Like all Victorian Government schools, our school has a COVIDSafe plan, which includes extra cleaning and record-keeping of all staff, students and visitors who attend on-site. QR codes are mandatory for any visitors to schools including parents who come into school buildings and indoor facilities (but not staff or students).
