Re: COVID-19 at Craigburn Primary School
A member of our school community has tested positive to COVID-19 from the following class/room:
- Room C15 (Monday 28 and Tuesday 29 March)
Your child is a classroom contact if they were in these classes/rooms on these dates.
Your child should continue to attend school however you must monitor for symptoms for 14 days. You, as the parent/guardian, must ensure your child is well and has no symptoms of COVID-19 (even mild) prior to them attending each day.
We will continue to provide regular updates if anyone else in our school community tests positive for COVID-19.
For 7 full days after Tuesday 29 March your child should:
- Avoid attending out of hours school care
For 14 full days after Tuesday 29 March your child should:
- Wear a surgical mask around others (where age appropriate) and outside your home
- Avoid COVID-19 Management Plan events
- Avoid high-risk settings (e.g. aged care, disability care, healthcare)
- Avoid non-essential activities with high transmission risk (e.g. many people, inside, in close contact)
- Avoid contact with vulnerable people (elderly, pregnant women, people with chronic health problems) unless it is your immediate family
- Avoid shared spaces and maintain physical distancing, where possible
If your child develops symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell/taste, muscle/joint pains, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting or extreme tiredness, please:
- Obtain a PCR test (You can find your nearest COVID-19 testing clinic here)
- Inform the school and keep your child at home until you receive confirmation of a negative test and their symptoms have resolved, whichever is longer.
- If your child tests positive, s/he is a COVID-19 case, must remain isolated for 7 days and must follow SA Health instructions.
The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff are paramount. As such, we will continue to work closely with SA Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is closely followed. While we recognise this can be disruptive and inconvenient for many families it is important that we follow SA Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission within our community.
