COVID-19 update Hunter River Community School non-operational extended

COVID-19 Banner

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your patience during this time while we work with NSW Health.

I would like to provide you with a further update to my communications yesterday.

As you are aware, the NSW Department of Education has been advised by NSW Health that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19.

Our school was made non-operational on Saturday 16 October and will be non-operational on Monday 18 October 2021 for the on-site attendance of staff and students to allow time for contact tracing and cleaning.

All staff and students will receive specific advice about their contact status this evening.

NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or if you develop any symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell/taste, muscle/joint pains, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting or extreme tiredness to be tested at one of the COVID-19 testing clinics.

Further information about COVID-19 is available on the NSW Government website

The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times. As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is adhered to. 

While we recognise this will be disruptive and inconvenient for families, it is important that we follow NSW Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Tracey Rapson
