Dear parents/carers and staff,
This is important information from WA Health.
I am writing to advise you there has been a positive case of COVID-19 associated with Balga Senior High School.
The Department of Health has completed contact tracing and determined that there are no school-based close contacts of this case. No students or staff are required to quarantine at this time and should attend school.
Nonetheless, this news should come as a timely reminder for all members of the community to monitor COVID-19 symptoms and seek testing if symptoms develop.
Advice for all families and staff:
- The school remains open.
- We ask that you monitor your child/yourself for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result, if symptoms develop.
- If you or your child develop symptoms, please do not attend school.
- Please note that the Omicron strain can present with less typical symptoms such as diarrhoea, particularly in children.
Mr Mark Carton
