A Catholic College Wodonga student has tested positive to COVID-19.
In a letter to parents Principal Darren 'Darta' Hovey said the school would be closed to all students on Tuesday.
No zoom classes will be held.
"This closure will allow time for the school and the DHHS to work through a contact and containment strategy," Mr Hovey said.
"Areas directly impacted have been closed and will be cleaned in line with COVID guidelines."
Mr Hovey said the school would notify families, staff and students if they had been in contact with the infected pupil this afternoon.
"All students are advised to remain at home while contact tracing occurs. They must limit movements to home-based activities and not attend public places," he said.
"I understand this news will be concerning for many of you. I want to assure you we are doing everything we can to contain and slow the spread of the virus, and ensure the health and safety of our whole school community.
"The school is being supported by the DHHS and the CECV regarding our next steps and appropriate action.
"The school will update all families once the contact tracing has been completed and a decision about reopening the school facilities for students is made. We will continue to keep you informed as further updates become available."
