Remember that if you are unwell with a temperature, cough or cold and flu symptoms, it’s important that you stay at home and practice social distancing.
The school break has been moved up and will start from 30 March for all Queensland State School students until 20 April 2020.
If your parents need to go to work, you can still go to school to be supervised up until 3 April but your classes won’t run like normal.
Schools will reopen to students and staff on Monday, 20 April 2020 unless health authorities advise otherwise.
The Prime Minister has said that parents may choose to keep you at home, however, they should notify your school of this decision.
