Dear parents and students.
Please see below for answers to post lockdown frequently asked questions relating to students attending school for the week commencing Monday 8 February.
My child is 11, do they need to wear a mask whilst at school?
Yes. This directive applies to all secondary students.
Will my child need to wear a mask during PE?
Students will not be required to wear masks whilst undertaking strenuous exercise. They will have to wear their mask at other times during the lesson.
What do I do if my child has a medical condition or disability that makes it difficult for them to wear a mask?
Students are not required to wear a mask if they have a physical, developmental or mental illness, injury, condition or disability which makes wearing a face covering unsuitable. Please email your child’s Deputy Principal and they will work with you to make a determination and inform staff of any exemptions that have been made.
What happens if my child forgets their mask or doesn’t have a mask?
Students are encouraged to take responsibility for ensuring they have a mask. We will maintain additional supplies for those students who need them.
What happens at recess and lunch times?
Students will be allowed to remove their masks if they are consuming food, drink or medicine, provided that they are seated at the time.
Are parents and caregivers allowed on-site?
Yes. Parents are allowed on site. It is essential that all parents and guests sign-in through the main administration and that they are wearing a mask at all times. We will not be hosting gatherings that involve parents over the next week.
We look forward to seeing you on Monday
