The adverse weather conditions and unprecedented bushfire activity is impacting on our schools in a variety of ways, including staffing, transport, road closures, health etc.
The Department is liaising closely with the NSW Rural Fire Service and State Emergency Service to determine the operational status of schools for tomorrow.
At this stage, Hastings Secondary College Westport Campus and Hastings Secondary College Port Macquarie Campus will remain open tomorrow (Tuesday 12th November) however this status may change in the coming hours.
Many staff have and continue to be affected by the current situation. Parents and carers are advised that supervision at the campus will be minimal. Classes will NOT operate as usual.
Please carefully consider your situation and the most appropriate actions to promote safety for your family.
The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our number one priority. Parents are advised to make sensible decisions regarding the safety of your family. Please take all necessary precautions to keep safe.
Our situation may change as we receive updated information about school closures. If this occurs, we will communicate this as soon as we know.
Thank you for your understanding. Please share this information.
Classes will resume as normal on Wednesday 13 November 2019.
