Before reading this letter, please note this letter serves to provide information to the parents/carers in the St John’s School Community. It is precautionary in nature. We currently do not have any confirmed positive COVID-19 cases in the school community.
This evening, Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) has sent out communications in relation to the announcement by the Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Sue Ellery and the Minister for Child Protection and Community Services, the Hon Simone McGurk around the new high caseload protocols specifically for school and childcare settings. These protocols take effect as of tomorrow, Tuesday 8 February.
The start of the school year is an important time for students, staff and families and I write to provide assurance of the measures that Catholic schools have in place to align with the requirements set out by State Government in response to COVID-19.
