COVID-19 Update – Tuesday 20 July 2021

Dear Parents and Caregivers

Today the Premier announced a 7-day statewide lockdown starting at 6.00pm tonight (Tuesday 20th July). This is a challenging time and I appreciate your partnership and support throughout this time.

Wednesday 21st July

Tomorrow, Wednesday 21st July has been designated as a pupil free day, where school staff will be preparing for home learning – to commence on Thursday 22nd July.

Only the children of essential workers will be able to attend our OSHC service on this day, between the hours of 7.00am to 6.15pm. Families will not be charged for this service. To support us with supervision requirements, please make a booking as soon as possible by contacting our OSHC service on 0427271768 or email cps.oshc820@schools.sa.edu.au

Thursday 22nd July to Tuesday 27th July

From Thursday onwards, we will be offering a home learning program for students, which teachers will be communicating with you by tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon. Students will be taking home essential items today in preparation for home learning to start on Thursday.

Teachers have sensitively discussed the impending lockdown situation with children today, where they have encouraged them to demonstrate our school values of Caring and Responsibility during this time.

Again, only the children of essential workers will be able to attend school and if needed our OSHC service on lockdown days. A skeleton staff will provide supervision at school, based in the library on these days.

On a day by day basis, we ask parents and caregivers to inform us by email dl.1226.admin@schools.sa.edu.au if their child/ren will be attending school. Please note, our OSHC service will only operate in the mornings and afternoons at no cost to families. Bookings must be made in advance.

We will endeavour to keep you informed as we work our way through the new COVID-19 Directions.

We appreciate that this is a significant undertaking for you and your family. Your child’s teacher, our support staff and I are here to support you where we can.

Please take care and look after yourselves throughout this challenging time.

Kind Regards

Paul
