Our schools in the 11 local government areas affected by the current lockdown will implement learning from home with alternative education provisions for all classes for the remainder of this week following the directions of Queensland Government.
Our experienced and dedicated teachers will provide quality learning and engagement during the lockdown period and will continue to support their students as they access alternative education provisions from home. Alternative education provisions include online learning and resources for students who do not have access to online platforms. Only the children of essential workers or vulnerable students can attend school during the lockdown, where they will receive supervision while participating in the same educational experiences as their classmates accessing learning from home.
If you have any concerns about the wellbeing of your child please contact your school directly for support.
The current Lockdown of the 11 Impacted LGAs will be in place until 4pm on Sunday 8 August. This means:
The updated list of exposure sites is available here. Please adhere to the Queensland Health advice for close contacts, casual contacts and low-risk contacts.
All staff at a school site must wear masks indoors even when socially distanced, including during teaching. Masks are only to be removed if there is a student with a hearing impairment or difficulty is experienced by the students with clarity of the communication. If teachers remove the mask when speaking, they are to put the mask back on when they are not speaking. This applies to both face to face and AEP delivery taking place on the school site.
Any BCE staff on a BCE school site must wear a facemask unless one of the exemptions apply.
All students in Years 7 -12 attending school must wear a facemask and students attending school from Prep-Year 6 are encouraged to wear a facemask but are not required to.
No parents should be allowed on the school site, and if there are exceptional circumstances to allow a parent or caregiver on-site, they must wear a mask.
Staff attending a BCE Office site must wear a facemask unless one of the exemptions apply.
