At Macarthur the health, safety and welfare of our students and staff are our greatest priority closely followed by our continuity of educational service to the students. With these two priorities in mind, a number of protocols remain in place that impact some of the usual activities across the School. The overall intention of these protocols is, where it is within the School's control, to keep the School operational on a day-to-day basis so that face-to-face teaching and learning can continue.
There is a significant easing of restrictions, however, contact tracing of external people on site remains a priority. As such, using the Sevices NSW App and QR Code to checkin whenever entering the School premises remains apart from drop-off and pick-up times. In addition, parents attending any approved event will need to use the relevant TryBooking form so that the School can monitor numbers and collect contact details for contact tracing purposes. If an event does not have a TryBooking facility then parents are not able to attend.
Parents should rest assured that plans are in place to communicate in such instances as efficiently and clearly as we are able. Direct email to parents and postings on this webpage will be the priority. Detailed plans are in place to deal with either the collection of students from the campus if the advice is received during a school day or to communicate with parents before School if the School is informed overnight.
Updated protocols for the management of COVID-19 on an ongoing basis is outlined below:
