It is my commitment to provide the safest environment I can for our extended EYMS community. With the potential for over 200 people to come into the classroom weekly, it is critical that we all do our utmost to prevent transmission of coronavirus among us and our families and friends.
Rejoining us at face to face classes is therefore done at your own discretion, keeping in mind the following:
This is paperwork required by NSW Department of Education as Parents are external visitors to the school site. Please bring it to your first class with you and I will pass it onto School Admin.
I would like to elaborate on the process that the school is following and expecting in relation to forced absence due to Covid-19. Over the winter period it is expected that children will (as normal) likely develop colds and flu.
If your child has Flu like symptoms please keep them at home. It is the understanding that most children referred to a doctor, will be directed to have a Covid-19 test. This is fine and is a quick process that does not hurt. At this point you are requested to ring the school and inform the office or Principal. The Principal reports the test to the Department of Education Incident Report Hotline. A reference number is given back to the school. When the test results return, (usually 1-2 days) the parent again contacts the school and discloses the results. This is very important to complete this step before a return to school.
The Principals contact the Department of Education Incident Report Hotline and references the incident number and if negative, the incident gets closed. Very simple, very quick.
One point of importance is, if one child in the family is home due to testing, all children in the family are to stay at home. Similarly if the family member being tested is an infant or one of the parents all children again are to remain home until results have been returned.
PLEASE NOTE : EYMS parents can contact Ruth with any test results and she will pass them onto me.
All payment will be done by Card only in my classroom, using my Square reader.
