You may be aware that the State Government announced today that three areas of Western Australia will enter Lockdown from 6pm this evening. I have just been updated regarding plans for tomorrow and the rest of this week.
I am writing to advise that our school will be closed tomorrow following the Premier McGowan’s announcement earlier today.
The Perth metropolitan area and the Peel and South West regions are moving to a 5-day lockdown effective at 6pm, Sunday 31 January, 2021 until 6pm Friday, 5 February 2021.
This means all public schools in these regions will be closed this coming week. Our teachers and school staff will also remain at home. This will be an extension of the school holidays and no lessons or supervision will be provided.
Information about the lockdown is available on the wa.gov.au site. The latest health information is available through WA Health Department.
I will provide more information during the week about school arrangements beyond Friday.
Stay safe and well. We will look forward to welcoming students back to school when we can.
