Latest Updates regarding COVID-19

Dear Families
Roma Mitchell Secondary College seeks to deliver a proactive approach as we look after the safety of our students and staff in our care.

At this time, we need to be considerate towards each other and work with grace, care and compassion.

At present there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 amongst the Roma Mitchell Secondary College community.

In light of the recent developments surrounding the COVID-19 in the wider community, Roma Mitchell Secondary College will be implementing the following measures to support the containment of COVID-19.

Lessons will be programmed as normal but will minimise activities that promote physical contact. Roma Mitchell community is a digital school and we have encouraged staff to put all work supports, resources and assessment tasks on Daymap for students to continue with their learning.

Students will be asked to work on their own devices and move away from using communal pens, pencils, and other stationery items.

Personal hygiene and the hygiene standards in all schools are critical to reducing the risk of infection.

All students and staff are encouraged to:

  • Wash their hands regularly, particularly after using the toilet and before eating. We have distributed all available sanitizers to key learning areas along with paper towels.
  • Avoid spreading infections to others by staying home if they are unwell.
  • Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue or elbow. If your child presents as unwell with fever and/or respiratory infection they should remain at home until symptoms resolve.

We understand that we are in times of uncertainty, as such, we have cancelled all assemblies, excursions, parent teacher nights and Open Day/Night.

As another precautionary measure, we are limiting outside contact into our school. We have locked the entrance to our buildings, if you need to come into the school, please read the notice on the door and ring us on 8161 4600.

If you have any further queries, please contact the school.

Yours sincerely

Toni Carellas
Principal
