FAQs

An off-site learning environment means that students will continue their learning at home, not at school. Teachers will facilitate student learning using a combination of online and take-home resources and platforms.

If your child is unwell or has had contact with any suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19, please do not send them to School. 
Unwell symptoms include:
Fever
Cough 
Sore throat
Shortness of breath
Runny nose
Sneezing 
Vomiting

The School is currently conducting daily temperature checks to help monitor and protect our students, staff and Community.  

Please notify the School of any confirmed COVID-19 student cases on enquiry@mentonegrammar.net and follow government health guidelines about seeking medical advice.
