Site closure – Thursday 9 November 2023
I am writing to inform you that Quorn Area School will be closed onThursday, 9 November 2023, due to a vote for industrial action by members of the Australian Education Union at this site.
The Education Director has approved the closure on the grounds that insufficient staff will be on duty to enable me as Principal to ensure that adequate standards of learner safety and welfare can be provided.
Normal education programs will commence at the site on Friday, 10 November 2023.
Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding this information.
Regards, Andrew Gilsenan-Reed Principal

Head lice continues to be a problem in our primary school. Another case of head lice has been reported within our primary school community today. It is important to regularly check your child's head for lice and then treat if necessary.
Head lice are spread mainly through direct head-to-head contact but may also be spread by sharing hats, combs and other hair accessories.
Anyone can get head lice.
Please refer to the head lice prevention and treatment fact sheet for information on head lice, how to check, treatment and prevention.
Head lice are much easier to treat if caught early.
To prevent the spread of head lice, you should check your child(ren) daily over the next three weeks and regularly after that.
Please inform the school or preschool if your child presents with head lice and make sure they are treated before returning.
