COVID-19 update - Fernhill School non-operational extended

COVID-19 Banner

Good evening Fernhill School community,

Thank you for your patience while we have been waiting for information from NSW Health regarding the reopening of our school.

The NSW Department of Education has been advised by NSW Health that another member of the school community has tested positive for COVID-19.

Our school will be non-operational for the remainder of this week, Thursday 2 September and Friday 3 September 2021 for the on-site attendance of staff and students.

All staff and students are asked to self-isolate until you receive further advice. I will communicate with you again on Sunday 5 September 2021 to update you about the status of our school.

NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or if you develop any symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell/taste, muscle/joint pains, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting or extreme tiredness to be tested at one of the COVID-19 testing clinics.

Further information about COVID-19 is available on the NSW Government website.

The NSW Department of Education will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff is maintained.

The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times. As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is adhered to. 

While we recognise this will be disruptive and inconvenient for families, it is important that we follow NSW Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
