Update 19102021

Please see the following Comunication from Secretary Department of Education

Dear parents and carers 

As you would be aware the Tasmanian Government has announced that from 6PM this evening (18 October) the current lockdown in the Southern Region will be lifted.  

This means that from tomorrow, Tuesday 19 October, our schools will resume usual operation with all students returning to school sites.

Hygiene and Preventative Measures 

Public Health has announced some preventative health changes.  It will continue to be mandatory that facemasks be carried and worn when outside of the home for people aged 12 years and over until 6PM Friday 22 October. Based on findings from lockdowns in other states, the wearing of facemasks has been highly effective in reducing the spread of COVID-19.  

In our schools, students in our secondary and senior secondary schools (students in Years 7-12) will be required to wear a facemask while at school. Staff in all schools will be required to wear a facemask, however there are some circumstances when they may be removed:

  • communicating with a person who is deaf, or has impaired hearing, and visibility of the mouth is essential for the communication; and 
  • clear enunciation, or visibility of the mouth, is essential as part of employment or training.
  • when eating, drinking or taking medicine;
  • if you are working, volunteering or studying in an indoor or outdoor space where there are no other persons present;
  • (when you are alone in your personal vehicle, or when all the people present in the vehicle are members of your household).

If you take your facemask off for one of the above reasons, you must put it on again as soon as possible.

For these students, the expectation is that they will have their own masks; however, if your child attends school and does not have one, the school will supply one from its stock.    

For both students and teachers, exemptions are made for those with a physical or mental health, illness, condition or disability that makes the wearing of a face mask unsuitable, subject to appropriate evidence being provided.

In line with other current preventative measures we encourage everyone to: 

  • continue to practice good hygiene by washing your hands regularly and coughing into your elbow.
  • maintain physical distancing where possible
  • stay at home if you have any cold and flu symptoms and for parents to arrange a COVID test 
  • ensure you are wearing a facemask if you leave the house
  • if you enter a school site make sure you check in using the Check In TAS App

 

To continue to keep up to date with the situation please visit www.coronavirus.tas.gov.au

We look forward to welcoming all students back to school tomorrow.  Thank you all for your support and cooperation during this period.    

Stay safe
