UPDATE: As of Sunday 6th September 5pm we have not had any member of our community test positive for Covid-19.
The following was posted on Friday 4th September:
I wanted to update our community on the recent school reopening procedures, and outline the specifics for what parents should do if their child or anyone in their household has any Covid-19 symptoms.
We really appreciate the positive feedback that we have received concerning the website that we created to support parents through the reopening process. As you will have seen, the videos explain the extensive measures that we have put into place concerning entry into the school environment, building, classrooms arranged into zones, split breaks / lunches etc.
As Principal of both XP and XP East, I have been absolutely delighted with the mature and focused approach from all of our students. To say their behaviour has been outstanding would honestly be an understatement. As we progress throughout the weeks and terms ahead we will need to maintain this level of conduct, and I know that we will be able to count on parents to support us as we continue to navigate any potential challenges that lie ahead.
Remember, if students show the following symptoms parents must ensure that they are tested:
- A new, continuous cough (where you cough a lot for more than an hour, or have three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours)
- Fever – where your temperature is above 37.8C
- Loss of smell or taste
In addition, the table below includes specific details about what to do regarding a range of different scenarios for anyone else in their household (for instance, the Mother of a child that goes to XP).
