RETURN TO SCHOOL DETAILS
A return to school is getting closer, with students in Prep, Grade 1 and Grade 2 returning to school on Tuesday 26 May.
To support all school staff to prepare for this transition, Monday 25 May will be a pupil-free day. No students come to school on this day.
In the second stage of our return to on-site schooling, all other year levels will return to school from Tuesday 9 June.
For those students who cannot be supervised at home and vulnerable children, the existing model of on-site schooling will remain in place during the two-week period from Tuesday 26 May to Tuesday 9 June. As has been the case all term, for these two weeks, only students who can’t stay home are allowed to attend school. If you are requesting your grade 3-6 students to attend school next week, please complete the forms that are available in the office, or online at https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=N7Ns2Ycaz0S2mzzsM0pMHygp6r02 BGxMsCiTPpZnSYdUQ0hDUFdNUEM2NFVWRldOQllURk0yNlUwRi4u
Can all forms for the following week be submitted by 10am on Friday, so that planning can occur at school.
Once a year level has returned, all students will be expected to attend school as normal. This means if you choose to keep your child/children home after their year level has returned to on-site schooling, we can no longer support their learning from home.
This does not apply to children who need to be absent for health or medical reasons. For those families, please contact us so we can make an appropriate plan.
If you child is ill or is feeling unwell, they must not attend school. They must remain home and seek medical advice. We ask that students with any cold or flu symptoms, even if only mild, are kept home at this time.
Some changes at school that we are implementing to assist with controlling the spread of Covid-19 are as follows:
- Drinking Bubble taps are not to be used. Students are asked to bring their own drink bottle to use at school.
- The Playground Equipment will remain closed.
- We believe that at our school we do not need to have a staggered start and finish time, as long as parents follow the following procedures- do not enter the school grounds unless it is absolutely essential. In the mornings, you can drop your child at the gate and then leave straight away. Please do not linger or congregate in groups at the school. In the afternoons, please stay at your car, and we will have teachers on duty ensuring students get to their cars safely. By following these simple steps, we will continue to promote social distancing amongst adults.
More information about the return to school and coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found on the Department’s website, which will continue to be updated:
