    New Procedures

    Given the continuing evolving situation regarding COVID-19, parents/carers should not enter the school grounds at the beginning and end of the day, to support current social distancing expectations. Parents are asked, where possible, to use the kiss and drop areas to deliver and collect their children or meet them at the gate to pick up at the end of the day.

    Being aware of symptoms

    If your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms; fever, flu-like symptoms, coughing or sneezing, difficulty breathing, sore throat or fatigue, we recommend staying home from school and seeking medical advice.  We encourage families to check their children’s temperature at home and if it is 38°C or higher (ie a fever), please stay home and again, seek medical advice. SA Health have a great infographic related to symptoms – click here 

    Home learning and assessment

    Teachers have been working really hard to deliver what is essentially two versions of the curriculum, to cater for those who are at school and those learning from home.  It is unrealistic at this stage to expect our teachers to be marking and assessing all of the learning that is occurring at home whilst school is still open.  Please see the Skoolbag app regarding home learning for more information.

    Playground / Communal resources

    All playgrounds are now  closed  to reduce social distancing expectations and ensure the cleanliness of all hard surfaces. We have also removed sandpit toys to reduce exposure. Communal stationary, play equipment and books will also be restricted.

    This means that readers will no longer go home to the early years but instead online resources like Sunshine online, Raz-Kids, Oxford Owl and Epic Reads. Your teacher will communicate with you what forum they would like you to use.
