Dear parents and carers

I am writing to let you know that free RATs for each student have now been delivered to the school.

These free RATs will support our students to continue to attend school for face-to-face learning and will minimise disruption to their schooling. You will be able to test your child at home if they are feeling unwell. You can also use these RATs if your child is a close contact to enable them to test daily and continue to attend school, as long as they receive a negative result, remain asymptomatic, and wear a mask if they are in Year 7 and above. I have attached a letter which explains how to use the RATs.

We will start handing out these RATs as follows:

• Parents/carers can collect from Friday 13/05/2022 – Wednesday 18/05/2022 during school hours 10am to 4pm.
• If you need your child to collect the RATs for your family, please contact the school via email Yanchep.sc.enquiries@education.wa.edu.au ​
or phone 9562 8000 to give permission for collection.
• Students can only collect RATs after school. Students are expected to take RATs home unopened so they can be used in the home environment.

If your child becomes symptomatic they should stay home and be tested for COVID-19. You should notify the school if your child tests positive for COVID-19. Refer to healthywa.wa.gov.au for information on close contact definition, testing and isolation requirements.

Thank you for your continued efforts in keeping our school COVID-19 safe.

Kind regards

Anthony Johnson
Principal
