What should I do if I have symptoms when in school?

Notify your subject teacher or Year Head as soon as you display symptoms. Your teacher/Year Head will assist you and school management will notify your parents/guardians you are feeling unwell. If you are displaying symptoms prior to arriving in school notify your parents/guardians and do not come to school until COVID-19 can be ruled out.
