Sickness Update 3 August

Dear parents/caregivers,

This week we have as many as 30 students away sick on any one day with a variety of ailments. This number is a large proportion of our student body and so we want to ensure that it doesn't continue to rise. Some of these symptoms are 'flu-like' and so we need to remind parents/caregivers of the importance of keeping their child(ren) at home if they are not 100%. If your child is away sick, please let us know what is causing this.

At school we are reminding children of good personal hygiene practices, such as washing hands with soap, covering your mouth with your elbow when coughing or sneezing and facing away from others. We will be contacting parents as per our normal procedure if their child(ren) fall sick while at school. We are also in close contact with our local public health service regarding any possibilities of flu entering our community. We will keep you updated.

Thank you,
Rob Clarke
