If a case of COVID-19 is reported to Ocean Grove Primary School, all families will be notified via email.
Students who show symptoms of COVID-19 cannot attend school and should get tested and isolate
If your child is not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms but was in the year level with the confirmed covid case, they can continue to attend school but should monitor for symptoms

The Department of Education and Training has set up a portal for parents to notify schools if their child/children test positive to COVID19. To do this you will need to register and set up and account. This is a quick and easy process.
Parents only need to report their test result if it is COVID-positive. They must report a COVID-positive result to:
- the school by phone and the RA Test Portal; this is so the school can support them, record that they will be absent while in 7-day isolation, and let the rest of the school community know there has been a positive case onsite and that they should monitor for symptoms
- the Department of Health via the COVID-19 Positive Rapid Antigen Test Self-Reporting Form or call centre on 1800 675 398.
