COVID-19 Updates and Support

The latest health information is available through WA Health Department

While the situation regarding the COVID–19 continues to evolve, the Department of Education sector has established plans and a team to support principals and schools. It is important that as a school community we apply common sense, factual information and a practical approach to COVID–19.

Staff and students who are COVID-19 positive and experiencing symptoms is strongly encouraged to stay home until they have recovered and register their positive RAT with Department of Health.

Anyone who is a close contact is encouraged to test daily for 5 days and only attend school following a negative RAT result.

Masks are no longer required on public and passenger transport, including school buses and vehicles. Staff and students can wear a mask at school if they choose to.
