Health Guidelines for all students

During the current COVID-19 epidemic it is absolutely vital that we take all steps possible to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff and wider SCAS community.

The following guidelines are in place for all members of our community:

  • All students who are absent or sent home due to flu like symptoms must be tested for COVID-19.

  • Students must not return to school until they return a negative COVID-19 result and are symptom free.

  • The School must sight the negative COVID-19 test result prior to allowing students to return to school. Test results should be emailed to absence@scas.nsw.edu.au

  • Students who are unwell with any cold or flu symptoms (e.g. fever 37.9 or higher, sore throat, congested or runny nose, cough or acute respiratory symptoms, muscle or body aches, nausea or vomiting, diarrhoea) must stay home until they are completely symptom-free without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom altering medications (e.g. cough suppressants, analgesics or cold and flu medication). If you have any of these symptoms, please do not come on to the campus.

  • Any student who reports to our First Aid Room as ill and showing any symptoms related to the virus will be isolated, and parents required to make arrangements for them to be collected immediately. In the interests of the health of other students and staff, the collection of these students by a parent or caregiver is non-negotiable.

  • Any student who has been sent home unwell should not return to school until they are symptom free without the use of medications.

  • Students with Asthma or Hayfever type symptoms need to obtain a medical certificate stating this, and that their symptoms are not contagious.

  • Any student who has had a COVID-19 test that comes back negative should not return to school until they are symptom free to ensure they do not spread any other cold or flu virus to other students or staff. It is also vital that all families follow any directive given at the time by NSW Health in regard to self isolating.

  • Any student who has a positive COVID-19 test must strictly follow the directions given to them by NSW Health in regard to treatment and self isolation, and should also inform the School as soon as possible.
