Are parents allowed back on school site from Monday in QLD?

Answered 3 months ago

Are parents allowed back on school site in your school? Some covid restrictions in QLD are lifting. I’m asking about in person access to uniform shop, tuck shop ordering in person, dropping/picking your child from outside of their classroom.

My school, also Gold Coast is a little weird. Sounds like they don’t want parents on school grounds regardless of safety measures in place. They “police” every gate. Parents are definitely not welcomed back on school grounds.

My kids school. Gold Coast sent this:

Dear Parents and Carers,
Many of you would be aware that the Premier has announced a relaxation of restrictions from 4pm Friday August 20. I am very pleased to be able to inform you, that from Monday next week, parents and carers will be able to enter the grounds and buildings, but some restrictions still remain in place as per the Health Directives as below:
Visitors and external providers including providers of extracurricular activities will now be permitted on school sites.
Masks must be worn by all visitors and external providers inside school buildings (unless they can stay 1.5m apart from other people) but may be removed outdoors, as long as they can keep 1.5 metres apart from other people.
Based on the advice above, I ask that parents who are walking onto the grounds to collect children, or are waiting in groups, please wear masks in order to adhere to these restrictions.
In addition to this, we ask that visitors also sign in using the QR codes at the various entry points around the grounds.
The easing of restrictions also means that excursions (within Qld only), camps and instrumental music may return to normal.
Our staff will in most cases still be required to wear masks while teaching indoors.
Thank you for your cooperation of the last few weeks as Queensland has worked hard to get the recent COVID outbreak under control. I appreciate your efforts in keeping our students and staff safe and in turn helping us all return to COVID normal next week. As the restrictions ease or change again I will keep you all informed of the changes to the way we operate in and around the school.
