Principals at state and state-integrated schools have authority to preclude a student from attending if they believe on reasonable grounds they may have a communicable disease under section 77 of the Education and Training Act 2020.
Vulnerable students should, where possible, remain at home and access the distance learning programme. Teachers who are considered vulnerable per the Covid guidelines should consult with their doctor and request a medical certificate. This is to be shared with the Principal and alternative arrangements will be made.

All movement of students around the school during learning time is to be supervised by a teacher or teacher aide. When students are moving around the building, they must wash hands before moving to another section of the school, use the assigned bathrooms, keep hands and bodies to themselves
