Holidays extended: Students return Monday 8 February

As I am sure you are aware by now, schools in the metropolitan area will not be commencing for 2021 as scheduled on Monday February 1.

The Department is currently working on a more detailed response to inform us of what is likely to happen next, but for now, what we know is:

  • Schools will be closed from 1-5 February. This will be treated as an extension of the school holidays.
  • At present, Term 1 is due to commence for students on Monday 8 Feburary.

Under current advice from the Department, staff have been directed to stay home and not attend school sites unless essential. This means there will be no-one available to answer phonecalls.

However, if you do have any queries, please do not hesitate to email the school address scarborough.ps@education.wa.edu.au . Please understand that we may not have answers to your questions or be able to access the information you require from home, but we will try our best!

This is an ever-evolving situation, but please be assured that I will continue to update you as new information regarding schools comes to hand.

Please look after yourselves and each other over the next week and know that we will  be extra excited to see you all back on Monday February 8.

Stay safe everyone,

Sarah Dawson
