Coronavirus- Ongoing situation
We are monitoring the situation closely with regards to the concerns around a potentially pandemic virus and receive up to date information from the Ministry of Education.  We have detailed procedures in place for the incidence of infectious diseases, and we will be revisiting them with our staff before the students start next week.  At the start of each new year, our teachers put a great deal of effort into building good hygiene practices with our students, and growing responsibility in our children. Teachers will be educating children on good routines of handwashing, sanitising, and covering coughs and sneezes. As a school, we are also ensuring that sanitisation of tables, door handles and light switches is completed to a high standard. We have placed hand sanitisers in every class, if you wish to send your child to school with their own sanitiser, this is also permitted.

We are also monitoring Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education, and Safe Travel NZ sites to ensure we have access to the most up-to-date information and advisories. 

As with all infectious diseases, and in line with our existing procedures, we have the following steps in place;
-Strong hygiene and cleaning practices in place during school time and by school cleaners
-Reminders for students and staff about good personal hygiene practice
-Monitoring students for symptoms of fever, runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, faint, muscle ache, other general unwell feeling and contacting parents if these are present
-Reminding children about not sharing food

We recommend that parents support us in this by keeping unwell children at home, and we in turn will be contacting parents of children who are demonstrating symptoms of illness such as sore throats, high temperatures, coughs and respiratory issues. It is existing school procedure for children demonstrating symptoms of illness to be taken home by parents. 

We request that anyone who has returned from China in recent weeks to remain away from school for a period of 2 weeks from the date of their arrival in NZ. 

Whilst we are required to follow the directions of the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health, we will be monitoring the ongoing situation and will provide further updates in the run up to the start of the new term.

Thank you for your support.

Riverina School.
