If a case is identified in our school, we will work closely with relevant authorities, including Queensland Health, in managing our response and our actions will be taken with community health at the centre of our decision making.
If there is a confirmed case at our school, it is possible our school may need to close for a period to allow Queensland Health to assess the situation and to perform contact tracing as required to identify people, staff and students who may have come in contact with the COVID-19 case. You may have already seen this happening in other states where confirmed cases have been identified.
If this occurs, we will also consider specialised cleaning of our facilities as required to ensure our school is safe for students and staff to return when clearance is given. A closure is likely to include any on-site services such as outside school hours care (OSHC) and other facility hirers.
Continuity of learning is extremely important to us and, as in other disaster and emergency events, we have options available to facilitate online learning to support your child’s learning. The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) also has procedures in place to support senior secondary students.
