We will get some communication out later this week about the return to school. Most of the details have been in the media already.
Covid Case 2C
22 Dec 2021
St Mary's has been notified that a student has tested positive for COVID-19.
The student was onsite on 13th (Mon) 14th (Tues) 15th (Weds) and 16th (Thurs) in 2C and it is likely they were infectious during this period. We have two students positive in 2C, however only one falls into the infectious period when they were showing symptoms, which is 48 hours before their first symptom.
If your child is in this class it is likely they will be identified as a Primary Close Contact.
Your child will need toremain in isolationand betested for COVID-19at your earliest convenience. The test should be a PCR test, not rapid antigen.
If your child is not in the above-mentioned class, there is no cause for alarm, and it is safe for your child to be onsite. We are in communication with the family to establish if the student was with any other students for long periods of time.
Please continue to monitor your child’s health, and if they have any symptoms such as
Most common symptoms:
loss of taste or smell
Less common symptoms:
aches and pains
a rash on skin, or discolouration of fingers or toes
red or irritated eyes
shortness of breath
get them tested. No other action is required at this time.
St Mary's is committed to doing everything we can to contain and slow the spread of the virus and ensure the health and safety of our whole school community. We will continue to keep you informed if further updates become available.
