Positive Covid-19 cases

Dear parents/carers and staff

I am writing to advise you there have been positive cases of COVID-19 associated with Warriapendi Primary School in Year 1 (Room 4), Year 3 (Room 7), Year 4 (Room 10) and Year 6 (Room 9).

It has been determined that there are no school-based close contacts of this case. No students or staff are required to quarantine at this time and should attend school.

Nonetheless, this news should come as a timely reminder for all members of the community to monitor COVID-19 symptoms and seek testing if symptoms develop.

Advice for all families and staff:

  • The school remains open.
  • We ask that you monitor your child/yourself for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested and
  • isolate until you receive a negative result if symptoms develop.
  • If you or your child develop symptoms, please do not attend school.
  • Please note that the Omicron strain can present with less typical symptoms such as diarrhoea, particularly in children.

Kind regards

Jacob Slavin
