Campus Update | College reopens on Thursday 3 March

The College campus will be open to students and staff on Thursday 3 March. Whilst the campus is open and students are encouraged to attend where possible, the safety of our community is our priority. The following protocols will be in place for student learning on Thursday 3 March.

  • Kindy: Normal classes will be held on campus.
  • Primary School (Prep to Year 6): Classes will operate as normal. Work will be emailed home to students that are unable to attend campus

  • TeamKids: Before and after school care is available

The College acknowledges that families may face access issues with several road closures due to ongoing flooding and traffic chaos from the north and south routes of the M1 and inland routes. With severe traffic congestion and long delays, please be aware that additional time may be required to travel to and from campus.

Bus Transport: The College buses will be in operation tomorrow. Surfside Bus lines and Yatala Coaches are anticipated to be operating, although disruptions may occur. Currently, we are awaiting notification from Logan Coaches. Please check the availability of buses by visiting the translink website. https://translink.com.au/updat...

Attendance: Students that are remote learning will need to access their normal google classroom for attendance records. If a student is not participating in remote learning or attending campus, normal procedures for absence apply. Please utilise the College absentee service by phoning 3287 0099 or emailing studentwelfare@rivermount.qld.edu.au if your child is not in attendance or remote learning on Thursday 3 March.

Campus update | Closed on Wednesday 2 March

In the ongoing safety interests of our community, the College campus, including TeamKids, will remain closed on Wednesday 2 March. Access to the campus has been impacted by road closures including Exit 35 in Beenleigh, Exit 38 in Yatala and major routes and arterial roads from Logan, Tamborine and Windaroo. In addition, many bus services, including Logan Coaches, remain suspended until further notice.

Remote learning will continue for those students that are not impacted by power outages.

An update on operations for Thursday 3 March will be communicated tomorrow.


The College remains inaccessible due to flooding in the local area and as such the campus will remain closed on Tuesday 1 March.

TeamKids will also be closed tomorrow.

Remote learning will continue for students that reside in areas that are not impacted by power outages. For students in areas where remote learning is not accessible, all endeavours will be made to ensure that missed work is caught up.

An update on accessibility to the campus for Wednesday 2 March will be communicated tomorrow.

COLLEGE CAMPUS CLOSED | Monday 28 February

Due to heavy rainfall and associated flooding, the College campus will be closed on Monday 28 February. Access to the campus is impacted by rising floodwaters in the region and it is anticipated that the Albert River will peak over the coming hours.

Managing COVID Cases within our College

In order to try and limit the spread of the virus within our community, we ask that parents and carers notify the College promptly if a student tests positive or becomes a close contact to another diagnosed household member. The College will then take steps to limit the spread, including communicating to families of the affected year level to alert them to a case in the community. Please be assured that specific details will always remain confidential.

Please email Student Welfare (studentwelfare@rivermount.qld.edu.au) to notify if your child/ren test positive or if they are a close contact (eg someone else in the household tests positive). Students who are close contacts must quarantine for seven days (inclusive of weekends) and must not attend school during this time.

The flow chart below outlines what to do if your child/ren develops COVID symptoms or is a close contact:

  1. Follow the blue path if your child tests positive.
  2. Follow the green path if your child becomes a close contact.

The flowchart includes direct links to forms and websites that will assist you with self-reporting requirements.
