Have you been contacted via SMS that your child is a classroom close contact?  Please read and adhere to the following.

Your child should continue to attend Woodend Primary School however you must monitor for symptoms. You must ensure your child is well and has no symptoms of COVID-19 (even mild) prior to them attending each day.

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, they should get tested and stay at home until they are well.

You can find your nearest COVID-19 testing centre here.

If your child tests positive, you must inform the Woodend Primary School front office immediately.

It is recommended positive COVID-19 cases stay home until acute symptoms have cleared and take steps to protect others. Siblings of confirmed positive cases are considered a close contact and should follow the advice from SA Health.

People who have recovered from COVID-19 will not be considered a close contact for 28 days after testing positive.

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, and all necessary precautions are taken to minimise the risk of further transmission within our community.

We will continue to provide regular updates of positive COVID-19 cases in our school.
