The latest advice about school or preschool closures will be on our news.
The Department for Education will enact its protocol for temporarily closing a site due to COVID-19 and follow SA Health advice if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 identified in a staff member, student or child in one of our sites.
Parents and carers should contact their school or preschool at first.
