Parents/Guardians are required to assess their child(ren) for symptoms of COVID-19 daily prior to sending them to school.


  • If your child has a sniffle and / or a cough that is not part of their normal, then please keep them home for two or three days. This will allow you to see how things develop.
  • If the cough is normal to the child, such as an asthma issue or a seasonal allergy, please inform your class teacher of this so that they know what to expect.
  • Thank you for your support as we all figure this out.
