School ‘circuit breaker’ issued

Athree-day circuit breaker was issued last week for a Glencoe Primary School class due to a number of COVID-19 cases reported at the facility.

Students from the impacted Year 2/3 class participated in online learning for those three days and are now back on-site at school.

Following the outbreak, a Department for Education spokesperson said mask wearing has been recommended for staff at the school.

“The school sent letters home for parents and caregivers about the response, which is in keeping with the department’s management plan for COVID-19,” the spokesperson said.

“Classes at these schools have since returned back to school safely and we do not have any classes requiring a three-day circuit breaker at present in South Australia.

“The Department for Education COVID response processes have remained in place from last year, in keeping with SA Health advice.

“The department continues to closely monitor reported COVID-19 cases of staff and students across all our schools and preschools.

“We also still have a centralised team monitoring COVID-19 transmission and providing advice and support where required.

“COVID-19 transmission levels are well below that observed at the end of 2022.”
