Students and Staff, welcome back to school for Term 4.
Welcome back. I hope you were able to enjoy a change of pace over the holiday break, to take some time out for yourself and refresh for Term 4.
As a reminder, the Iluka Public School site is under COVID-safe Level 3 conditions:
Staff are required to wear masks indoors and outdoors while on school grounds.
Masks or face coverings are recommended for primary students in indoor and outdoor settings on school grounds.
We are reducing the overall mingling of our different student years which means no school assemblies or sport (outside of existing PDHPE classes), excursions or field trips.
Only essential visitors will be allowed on site and will be required to check in and wear masks at all times.
Our canteen will open Fridays with appropriate hygiene measures in place.
Parents and carers will need to remain outside of school grounds, follow physical distancing and avoid gathering for drop-offs and pick-ups.
There will be enhanced daily cleaning of the school and wherever possible we will ensure classrooms will be well-ventilated with open windows.
The Before School Breakfast Program with Miss Lisa will be available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays following COVID-safe plans.
The Department of Education has worked closely with NSW Health in developing our return to school roadmap and COVID-safe school plan. NSW Health will continue to monitor vaccination rates and transmission levels in our LGA and will advise us if settings need re-evaluation.
All school staff have now received 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccination. This will help protect our staff and students and we encourage our entire school community to also get vaccinated as soon as possible.
I encourage you to get in touch with me directly and visit the Wellbeing for students and families page for support materials.
Please have a look at the helpful tips for primary students to support them in preparing to start the term.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
