Dear Parents and Caregivers
Thank you for your patience while we make decisions around the current lockdown restrictions for South-East Queensland.
The directions that TSS have been given are to begin on-line learning from Monday morning with only essential staff on-site. These staff include Health Centre staff, IT staff, and our boarding staff who will be supervising all boarders during the three-day lockdown. Given the demands around supervising a large boarding school, we will have limited capacity to supervise children of essential workers on Monday and Tuesday.
Specific instructions will be sent for Prep parents from Mr Jeff Symms and Senior parents from Ms Jo Inglis and Mr Karel Bos by tomorrow afternoon.
Director of Boarding, Mr Tony Watt, has already sent specific information regarding boarders earlier today and will continue to update parents regarding the boarding schedule and travel restrictions until Tuesday 4pm.
We understand the current lockdown places stress upon community and we appreciate your support, as always, as we work through the developments and we will update you accordingly. Please also refer to the TSS website COVID link for the most up-to-date information.
Mr Andrew Hawkins, Headmaster
