Batemans Bay High School non-operational for on-site learning Tuesday 11 August
We wish to advise that Batemans Bay High School will be non-operational for on-site learning tomorrow, Tuesday 11 August 2020. All students will undertake at home learning tomorrow.
The department has been advised by NSW Health that a student has tested positive for COVID-19.
The school will be non-operational tomorrow for the on-site attendance of staff and students to allow time for the school to complete the contact tracing process and have the school cleaned.
All staff and students are asked to self-isolate while contact tracing occurs.
While the school site is non–operational, learning materials are available through the department’s ‘Learning from Home’ website.
NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or has flu-like symptoms to be tested at one of the COVID-19 clinics.
A pop-up clinic will be established at Hanging Rock (near the Marine Rescue building in Hanging Rock sports complex) operating between 0900 and 1700 for the rest of this week (to Sunday) to accommodate increased demand.
Further advice will be provided tomorrow advising when the school will resume on-site learning.
Further information on COVID 19 is available on the NSW Health website. If you have any education-related questions please contact 1300 338 679.
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.
