COVID19 Quick Reference Guide
We understand that it may be difficult to navigate the new procedures in place that have been set up to protect and maintain the health and well-being of our community.
We have created this guide to address frequently asked questions that you may have relating to the school's COVID-19 health procedures and protocols. This guide also summarises the procedure to follow as regards absences for quarantine/self-isolation and non-COVID-19 related illnesses.
Please note that the school has created a dedicated email address for all COVID-19 related concerns or enquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This email will be monitored during business hours, Monday to Friday, 08.30 to 17.00. Communications sent to this address outside business hours will receive a reply as soon as possible. For all other non COVID-19 related matters, please continue to use the email address: email@example.com. Kindly note that absences for family reasons must be communicated beforehand.
