South Australian schools and preschools are open.
While we have been supporting parent choice during this pandemic, we now expect all public school students to attend their school or preschool.
Students are required to attend school unless they:
- are feeling unwell
- have a chronic medical condition or compromised immune system and are not able to attend school on advice from their medical practitioner
- live in a household with others that are deemed vulnerable to COVID-19 and are not able to attend school on advice of their medical practitioner
- have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been required to self-isolate by SA Health.
Schools will continue to provide support, as they would usually do, for students not able to attend school on advice from their medical practitioner.
Please speak to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
