The Department for Education will continue to follow the advice of the senior public health officials when making decisions that affect schools, preschools and early childhood settings.

Advice from SA Health and Australia’s expert health body, AHPPC, remains that schools, preschools and early childhood facilities should stay open and that they are safe for staff, students and children.

In light of that and the current low rates of infection in South Australia, students are encouraged to return to their classroom for term 2.

We respect the preference of parents and if you choose for your child to learn from home, remote learning options are in place.

Sites are contacting parents with further information.
