Dear parents and families,

Latest Information for all families of students enrolled in NSW Public Schools

The NSW Premier announced that, in addition to Greater Sydney, stay-at-home rules apply to all schools in regional NSW from 5 pm 14 August to 12.01 am 28 August. This replaces any existing orders in regional NSW.

Following updated health advice from the Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant about the growing risk to the community, stay-at-home rules will apply to all people who live in these areas.

Parents and carers in these LGAs must keep children – across primary and secondary school – at home unless they need to be at school. Schools (including outside of school hours care) are open for any child that needs it.

Early childhood education and care services – including family day care residences and venues – may continue to operate.

For specific advice on early childhood education, refer to COVID-19 and early childhood education and care.

All families are encouraged to discuss the changes with their schools if needed.

All families are encouraged to monitor the NSW Government’s latest COVID-19 news and updatesExternal link for locations where there may have been exposure to COVID-19 and adhere to the advice as appropriate.
