High school site remains closed

Yass High School students will be spread out across Yass for the start of the week as debris from the fire is cleared away.

Regular classes are tipped to return to the school by Thursday but that is yet to be confirmed.

Principal Sandra Hiscock said the updates are ever changing as workers were currently clearing the rubble.

Until the site is clear, students will be at other venues.

"Thanks to all parents for your understanding over the past weeks and to our partner schools and community who have provided such welcoming venues," Ms Hiscock said.

The school's presentation evening is still planned for tomorrow night in the school hall, pending an all-clear notification.

This week's venues:

Year 7: Baptist Church hall in Laidlaw Street, with an opportunity to experience archery with Mountain Trails on Tuesday and visit Questacon on Wednesday.

Year 8: Yass Public School.

Year 9: TAFE.

Year 10: Memorial Hall. The TAFE alternative program will go ahead Monday to Wednesday, with Presentation Day on Thursday.       

Year 11: Berinba Public School.

Year six/seven orientation: a date will be advised for some orientation activities. This will ensure enrolments and uniform purchases can be finalised.

Work will also be available online so students can access material from home.

A fire ripped through the industrial arts section of the school more than two weeks ago, causing millions of dollars worth of damage. See our initial story here.
