COVID-19 School Update: Returning to School

Dear PLHS parent/caregivers,

Earlier today, the Premier announced that schools, preschools and children’s centres will reopen to all students tomorrow (Wednesday July 28th).

Accordingly, Port Lincoln High School will be open. We will not be offering an alternative home-based learning program, unless your child is impacted by SA Health quarantine orders.

As our Chief Public Health Officer said, just because the hard lockdown is being lifted does not mean that the risks associated with COVID-19 have passed. As a result, we will:

  • minimise the number of people coming and going from our site; wherever possible, please drop off and collect your child at the gate and maintain the appropriate physical distance from other adults
  • postpone all school events, excursions and camps for the next week
  • require all staff and students in Years 8 and above to wear masks when indoors or on school buses; please note that staff will not have to wear masks while teaching or working directly with students

Students can wear their own cloth masks; we will also have supplies of surgical masks available as required.

Your child might have questions about wearing masks. It is important that we continue to follow SA Health advice; your continued cooperation is greatly appreciated as we assist students and staff with this necessary change.

Thank you very much for your support during the lockdown. We look forward to having your child back at school tomorrow.

Yours sincerely,

Todd George (PLHS Principal)
