Re: COVID-19 PLAN
You may have heard by now of the well-publicised cases of COVID-19 identified in the South Brisbane/ Logan areas and the impact that this has had on the local community. A number of schools have been closed for deep cleaning.
The purpose of this letter is to assure you that we have a plan, should we receive notification of a confirmed case of COVID-19. At present, we do not have any confirmed cases of COVID-19 and no Catholic schools have been impacted.
However, should we receive notification of a confirmed case of COVID- 19, the following procedures are in plan to take place:
Parents will be informed via the Schoolzine app, email, Facebook (OLOL Memos), website and text message that they are to collect their child(ren) from the school pick up zone. Students will be informed by their teachers to move to their designated pick up zones.
Preps with no siblings
Church Stop Drop & Go
Years 1-3 and younger siblings
Ascot St Stop Drop & Go
Years 4-6 and their siblings
Goodwood St carpark -
Enter carpark Hill St end
Exit carpark Ascot St end
Upon leaving the school, families will need to self-quarantine until notified by Health Authorities or by the school. Contact tracing by authorities will commence.
The office will be immediately closed. Parents are requested to make their way directly to the school pick up zones only.
Supervision of Students
Students will be supervised by staff in the designated zones for an hour after communication has been sent for children to be collected. After that time, if you have been unable to collect your child, they will remain supervised in the hall and students can be collected from the office.
Specialised cleaners will be brought into the school to begin the process of deep cleaning.
Learning from Home
Depending on the time it takes for the school to be appropriately cleaned and officially reopened, Learning from Home may need to re-commence. Please allow time for teachers to prepare essential learning material for you to continue learning from home. Teachers will be in touch via the usual means of communication.
Continued Health Advice
I understand that our families remain alert to the potential spread of the virus and how it may impact our school community. I would like to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of your children, our students, remains our number one priority.
Queensland Health urges all communities to continue to be vigilant about health and hygiene at this time and to that end, have asked us to remind communities of simple hygiene practices that support public health by:
keeping away from school should your child display flu symptoms- see your doctor
cleaning hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rubs
covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing and
avoiding contact with anyone who has flu-like symptoms
