What happens if your child falls ill at school?
Under the Queensland Chief Health Officer Directive, any student who is unwell must not attend school and students should remain at home until well. This cannot be emphasised enough – it is critical in maintaining our school community's wellbeing. The school must ask parents/carers to immediately collect their child from school if they are unwell.
We will not be administering RATs when children present to the office with symptoms. The Health advice is that children are isolated, parents called to collect them immediately and a RAT is offered to take home. Parents will be responsible for all testing and reporting.
Isolation and absence from school
As always, decisions about the operation of schools will be guided by health advice and informed by the
status of Queensland’s response to COVID-19 situation at the time. Refer to the Queensland Government website for current information.
At Peregian Springs State School we continue to:
* encourage and promote regular hand washing or use of sanitizer
* conduct increased cleaning of classrooms, particularly high frequency touch points including water fountains or bubblers.
Important note: Remain positive with your child about being at school and contact either their class teacher or their Lead Administrator should you have any questions or concerns.
