I write to advise that there has been a further positive case of COVID-19 at Campbell Primary School. This brings our total of students at Campbell PS, that have tested positive to COVID-19 to four. Two of these cases have required us to contact parents, as students have been identified as a close contact. The other two cases were not at school during their infectious period.
This information should come as a timely reminder for all members of the community to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and seek testing if symptoms develop.
Parents are to note that if we are advised of a positive COVID -19 case in your child’s class, this is the process Administration will follow:
· determine who is deemed a close contact;
· Parents/carers will receive an SMS informing them to collect their child;
· Further information will be sent directly to parent’s email;
· Parent collect their child and complete a RAT or PCR; and,
· Parents of identified close contacts are to advise the school if their child returns a positive COVID-19 test result.
If the RAT or PCR result is negative, the child can return to school the next day, and each day after, as long as they have not developed any symptoms and return a negative PCR or RAT on day 7. If your child develops any symptoms during this time, they should be kept home. Parents are reminded that children identified as close contacts are to remain in isolation outside of attending school.
Should your child be required to have a COVID-19 test, information on COVID-19 testing is available through the Department of Health.
We appreciate that a COVID-19 case/outbreak may disrupt student routines. In these times, it is important to keep a positive sense of wellbeing in all aspects of life: this includes physical, mental, social and emotional.
If you wish to access further information regarding COVID-19 I urge you to view the WA Health website.
If you have any concerns about your child during this time, please do not hesitate to contact the school on 9456 8300.
