COVID Update November 21

Dear Parents and Carers,

COVID 19 Update

Contact tracing has now been completed and NSW Health advice will be communicated to students who are close and casual contacts of confirmed cases, later today. We shall forward that advice to students’ @ education email accounts as soon as it is received this afternoon.

The Dept of Education will provide more formal advice later today. In the meantime, kindly note the following:

– The school is operational tomorrow. We have been advised by the Dept that there is no need to close and deep clean the school because of the enhanced COVID-19 cleaning that has been occurring for some time, the fact that all staff are fully vaccinated, masks are mandatory indoors and many of our students are also vaccinated.

– the HSC will continue as planned at CHS

-All students from Years 7 – 11 ( who are well)  should attend school tomorrow unless they are identified by NSW Health as a close or casual contact of a confirmed case (the request for ALL year 7 and Year 10 to self-isolate in last night’s letter was a precautionary interim measure, to allow contact tracing to occur).

I appreciate this is a stressful time for our community.

Kind regards,

Mary Doolan
