Dear parents and carers,
With the rising number of COVID cases in the state and the growing list of exposure sites, we are asking all families to strictly abide by the recommendations of the Victorian Health Department.
If anyone in your household has been exposed to a Tier 1 site they must isolate and quarantine for 14 days. Our expectation is that this would extend to any students in the household, even if they did not attend the Tier 1 site. Students must not return to school in that 14-day period and until the household member has tested negative at the end of that period.
If anyone in your household has been exposed to a Tier 2 site they must isolate, get tested immediately and remain in isolation until a negative test result is received. Our expectation is that this would extend to any students in the household, even if they did not attend the Tier 2 site. Students must not return to school until the household member has tested negative.
If anyone in your household has been exposed to a Tier 3 site they must monitor symptoms and get tested should any symptoms arise. Students of this household can attend school.
As always, for any families impacted by these expectations, we can arrange for schoolwork to be delivered and set up online contact with teachers as required.
If the latest outbreak has impacted on your family, we ask that you notify us immediately and we will make arrangements to support your child.
Please be aware that face masks are once again mandatory in indoor settings (outside of homes) and must be worn on public transport. Students must carry a mask with them at all times.

Thank you for your co-operation. We do hope this latest outbreak can be contained and does not impact severely on our community.
We will update you immediately should the situation change.
