COVID-19 Information

COVID-19 presents many challenges to our community, our workplaces, our way of life, and even our schooling, but St Luke's Anglican School is dedicated to meet these challenges head-on, providing our students, our families, and our entire school community with up-to-date information whilst maintaining a high quality of education within a safe environment for all.

Additional Information

If You are Sick/Symptomatic

  • To keep our school COVID-19 safe, students and staff must not attend school if they are unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Staff and students should attend their local Queensland Health testing clinic where they will be prioritised to receive a rapid antigen test (RAT).
  • If the test result is negative and the staff member or student is well, they can return to school. If the test is positive, the staff member or student will need to follow Queensland Health quarantine and isolation requirements.

Becoming Symptomatic at School

If a student or staff member becomes symptomatic while at school the following procedure will apply;

  • Students will be immediately isolated in a safe place, and their parents or carers will be contacted to collect their child.
  • When the student is collected, the parent or carer will receive a RAT to administer at home depending on our supply.
  • Staff members will immediately leave the school and be provided with a RAT to administer at home.
  • If the test result is negative and the student or staff member is well, they can return to school. If the test is positive, they will need to follow Queensland Health quarantine and isolation requirements.

The school community will be informed of a positive COVID notice. 

Individuals within the same classroom or staffroom as a COVID-19 case do not meet the current definition of close contacts. Therefore, the school does not need to close after a person within the school community tests positive for COVID-19.
