COVID-19 update - Sunday 25 April 2021

Dear Families of CBC Fremantle,

I hope you are all safe and well and apologise for interrupting your long weekend.

The Premier and Health Minister have had their press conference today and, although there was no definitive news that the lockdown will not end tomorrow at midnight, there wasn’t a definitive answer suggesting it won’t.

For this reason, my communication today is limited to two points.

The most important is obviously the health advice, in particular.

  • If you, or your family, have visited one of the high risk potential contact exposure sites (identified in the first section of the Health Department site here) during the exposure timeframe identified on the Health Department website, you must self-isolate for 14 days and get tested immediately. You must stay in isolation no matter what your test result is. This will apply to students and staff regardless of when the lockdown ends.
  • If you, or your family, have visited one of the potential contact exposure sites (identified in the second section of the Health Department site here) during the exposure timeframe identified on the Health Department website, you need to attend a COVID clinic for testing and isolate at home until you receive a negative result. Continue to monitor for symptoms for 14 days following your visit. If you experience any symptoms at any time – fever, coughing, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, loss of smell or taste – go to a COVID clinic to be retested.
  • If the lockdown ends on Monday at midnight, you are reminded that should your son be suffering from any of the symptoms above, do not send him to school and have him tested. If any member of our community presents to school with the above symptoms they will be sent home for testing and will need to stay at home until they receive a negative test result.

The second point I wish to convey is that it may be prudent to prepare for the possibility of Remote Learning as of Tuesday. Details will be sent in a follow up communication today, which you can read here. If it doesn’t eventuate, the read will help fill in a few minutes of your time, but I feel it is best to start preparing for the worst whilst hoping for the best. Ms Knox and I will be on-site tomorrow should your son need to access any Remote Learning materials, hence feel it best that you look at your preparations today.

I am hoping to be the bearer of good news tomorrow, but in the meantime, send my very best wishes to you and your sons, thankful for your unwavering support at these times and hopeful our staff can deliver the best possible outcomes should the lockdown continue.

With love and thanks,

Domenic Burgio
