School Procedures For The Bushfire Season Code RED Danger Rating Days.
CODE RED Days
Schools and children’s services listed on the DET Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR) will be closed when a Code Red fire danger rating day is determined in their Bureau of Meteorology district by the Emergency Management Commissioner
Our School Has Been Identified as Being One Of Those At High Bushfire Risk And Is Listed On The BARR.
Once a code red day has been confirmed, the decision to close our school will not change, regardless of
improvements in the weather forecast. This is to avoid confusion and help your family plan alternative care arrangements for your child. It is also important to note that no staff will be on-site on days where the school is closed due to a forecast Code Red day.
On these Code Red days, families are encouraged to enact their Bushfire Survival Plan – on such days children should never be left at home or in the care of older children.
