Advice for school communities

The NSW Department of Education is introducing proactive measures to limit the impact of COVID-19 in our schools.

The Premier has announced that from Tuesday 24 March parents are encouraged to keep their children at home and access their school's learning from home programs.

These measures have been put in place to help minimise the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in NSW.

We continue to work closely with NSW Health and the Australian Government to monitor and respond to developments and to ensure the safety and wellbeing of students and staff.

If you or your child is unwell with a respiratory illness, stay at home until symptoms clear up.

The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is the same way you would protect yourself from catching flu or other respiratory illnessesExternal link. Please refer to teacher resources on the importance of handwashing.

The Department of Education is working closely with NSW Health in responding to COVID-19 cases. Schools will take action in accordance with NSW Health advice on a confirmed case of COVID-19 where there has been an impact on a school. All other confirmed cases are a personal matter for those involved and they will be managed directly by NSW Health. People assessed as being a 'close contact' of a member of the community are identified and contacted by NSW Health and given appropriate advice.

Learning from home

Explore the department's learning from home resources for teachers and parents to support both online and offline learning for all students.
