Dear Parent / Guardian / Caregiver

The evidence emerging from countries around the world is clear and consistent: children are less likely to catch COVID-19. The Department of Basic Education and Health are establishing health safety measures to keep all children safe during this pandemic. However, a small number of serious medical conditions may put children at risk of becoming severely ill, and the Department needs to know about this to ensure that the necessary support and protection are provided in schools. 

Please complete the form below regarding any MEDICAL CONDITION your child has. Your child’s health information will be kept confidential. 

NB. Do NOT send your child/children to school if they are unwell or sick – this includes having a sore throat, runny nose, mild cough, headache or mild fever (high temperature). If needed take them to a health practitioner or the nearest clinic.
