COVID Update #8
Monday 14th March
Dear Parents & Caregivers,
It is vitally important that parents and caregivers inform the school if their child tests positive for COVID-19. To support our planning for your child’s classroom attendance, please continue to notify St Francis of Assisi if your child returns a negative PCR/ RAT result, after:
- being identified as a close contact (Day 1 test to return to school as an asymptomatic close contact), and/or
- being identified as a household close contact (Day 7 test to conclude quarantine).
To help streamline this process a self reporting portal has been developed by Catholic Education WA (CEWA)
Parents and caregivers can now inform the school of their child’s positive or negative COVID result via this LINK. The information will go directly to the Principal, prompting our COVID response.
The link is also available on our school website http://www.stfrancisbutler.wa.edu.au
Please do not underestimate the importance of informing St Francis of Assisi of a positive COVID case. Your actions will ensure the risk to others is minimised and that we do our very best to limit the spread of the virus across our community.
Please note - with the number of cases, I will now be notifying classes via email. If there is a confirmed positive case in a class, you will receive an SMS to check your emails. Please ensure you have recorded a current email address. If you need to change or alter your email, please phone 9562 9500.
