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.  

Kind Regards

Mr Mark Carton
