Covid school closure update


Sunday 1st August

Dear parents and caregivers
I am writing to provide you with updated information regarding COVID-19.
The health, safety and welfare of your children, our students, continues to be our priority.
Fortunately, we do not have any confirmed cases at our school and should this change I will update our school community as soon as possible. At this stage the 3 day lock down is due to cease at 4.00pm on Tuesday 3 August. The following arrangements are in place for Earnshaw State College for Monday 2 August and Tuesday 3 August:
• Schools are considered essential services.
• Students of essential workers and vulnerable students in the 11 affected LGAs can attend school on Monday 2 August and Tuesday 3 August.
• Students of non-essential workers will have access to remote learning from Tuesday 3 August. More detailed information will be sent out to all parents and carers on Monday.
• As an added precaution all staff in all schools will wear masks and all students in the secondary school will wear masks.
I understand, however, there may be some concern over the latest health alerts and the potential impact on our school community. Please be assured that our school has been taking all appropriate precautions regarding health and hygiene and we will continue to take the advice of Queensland Health.
We are working closely with the public health authorities and our own Department of Education to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff. If you have any concerns please contact the school on 36217333.
We all have a role to play to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. If you or any members of your household develop symptoms or feel unwell, please isolate and get tested.
Further information including interstate hotspots, contact tracing alerts, symptoms of COVID-19 and when to seek medical advice and prevention, can be found via Queensland Health.
Thank you for your continued support.​

Good morning parents and carers,

No doubt you have all heard by now that we are in lockdown from 4pm for three days. (ending 4pm Tuesday 3rd August)

At this stage schools will be open for children of essential workers and vulnerable children only.

Parents and carers who are able to work from home should keep students at home.

Staff and students in high school are to wear masks.

I will update you as we get more information.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
