Our school has been advised that a confirmed case of COVID-19 attended our University Campus.
Our University Campus will close for 24 hours as a precaution to undergo necessary cleaning and to identify students or staff who may have had close contact with the case.
As a precaution, please ensure that your child limits their movement tomorrow if they attended on site on Wednesday 13 October.
If we do not contact you tomorrow to say your child has been identified as a close contact, your child should return to school on Tuesday 19 October, 2021.
If we inform you that your child has been identified as a primary close contact, please ensure that you child limits their movement until you are contacted by the Department of Health directly. These calls or text messages can come from private or unknown numbers. Please answer these calls or follow the text message advice.
The rest of your family does not need to limit their movement at this stage.
If you or anyone in your family develops even the mildest of symptoms, please get tested.
