In a letter to parents and carers Bletchington Public School's principal Robert Mcpherson confirmed a member of the school community had tested positive for COVID-19.
In a message to the school on its website, Mr Mcpherson said the school will be non-operational effective immediately "for the on-site attendance of students and staff to allow time for contact tracing and cleaning".
"All staff and students are asked to self-isolate until you receive further advice," he said.
"During this time, learning from home resources will be available from the learning from home hub."
Mr Mcpherson said NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or developed any symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell/taste, muscle/joint pains, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting or extreme tiredness to be tested at one of the COVID-19 testing clinics.
"The NSW Department of Education will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff is maintained," he said.
"The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times. As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is adhered to.
"While we recognise this will be disruptive and inconvenient for families, it is important that we follow NSW Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community."
Mr Mcpherson thanked the school community for its "ongoing support".
Further information about COVID-19 is available on the NSW Government website.
