Face mask requirements at Para Hills High School
Today the Premier announced that schools, preschools and children’s centres will reopen to all students tomorrow (Wednesday 28 July). As a result, Para Hills High School will be open. We will not be offering an alternative home-based learning program unless your young person is impacted by SA Health quarantine orders.
As the Chief Public Health Officer said, just because the hard lockdown is being lifted does not mean that the risks associated with COVID-19 have passed.
As a result, we will:
- minimise the number of people coming and going from our site. Wherever possible, please drop and collect your young person in front of the school and maintain the appropriate physical distance from other adults
- postpone all school events, excursions and camps for the next week
- require all staff and students to wear masks when indoors, on public transport or on school buses. Please note that staff will not have to wear masks while teaching or working directly with students.
Students can wear their own cloth masks. We also have supplies of surgical masks available if they need them.
Your young person might have questions about wearing masks. It’s important we continue to follow SA Health advice and your continued cooperation is greatly appreciated as we help students and staff with this necessary change.
Thank you very much for your support during this lockdown. We look forward to having your young person back at school tomorrow.
