Face Mask Reminder

Dear Students and Families,

As per directions of the Victorian Chief Health Officer  from 11:59pm, Wednesday 3 February2021:

  • It is mandatory for all school staff and students aged 12 or older to carry a fitted face mask at all times and to wear a face mask indoors when at school.
  • Fitted face masks are mandatory on public transport, e.g. school buses
  • School staff are not required to wear a face mask while teaching, but those who wish to do so, can.
  • All visitors to school must also wear a facemask when indoors, e.g. in the administration office

Students attending school, and family members when visiting the school are expected to supply their own face mask. WHS has given out over 500 face masks already this week. Please remember to continue to bring your own face mask to school everday. 

For students with a medical exemption, a note explaining the reason for the exemption must be given to the administration office. If your child has asthma, a recent asthma management plan from your GP is required as per WHS Asthma management Policy.

In times like COVID, it takes the whole community working together to keep our community safe.

Kind Regards,
Michelle Bootes
Acting Principal
