Health and Safety Measures at school - Term 2 2022
It continues to be a priority to take all measures we can to protect our school community from the spread of illness and infection.
Please note the following plan to manage critical staffing levels due to sickness (this works in conjunction with our Community Plan scenarios):
Step 1 - Students and teachers work collaboratively in buddy hubs (Hubs 1&2, 3&4, 5) to cover staff shortage. Please be aware this will mean some aspects of classes may not operate as usual and we will run alternative programmes.
Step 2 - If we are unable to cover staff shortage due to having more than one teacher away with no relievers or being unable to rearrange existing cover in school we will need to close a hub. In this scenario our leadership team will provide cover for classes to enable us to provide a day’s notice to the affected hub families.
Step 3 - In the case of a hub closure, to minimise the spread of Covid-19 we will return to operating in our 'bubble zones' (separate play and working areas) and compulsory mask wearing for all adults and students from Year 4 up. Again you will have a day’s notice of this.
Though we are hopeful we will not be required to use these measures, we will continue to keep our families informed of the situation as required.
