Term 4 - Return to Face to Face Learning

Dear parents and guardians

On behalf of our school, I want to say a big thank you to all our students, parents and carers for your continued resilience and support throughout this year.

As I am sure you are well aware following advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, I am pleased to say the Victorian Government has released a staged approach for all Primary school students to return to on-site schooling.

The purpose of the plan is to get students back in the classroom as soon and as safely as possible without putting at risk all that has been achieved through the period of restrictions to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

For our school, the following arrangements apply:

From Monday October 12 Prep, Grade 1 Grade 2 students return to face to face learning

From Wednesday October 14 Grade 3-6 students return to face to face learning

As on-site schooling resumes, we will continue to have in place strong measures to protect the health and safety of students, staff, families and the community. This includes staggering finish times, restricting parent access to school grounds and continued emphasis on hand hygiene and physical distancing where possible. Appointments will need to be made for any visitors to attend onsite within the school building (this includes purchase of uniforms and other payments and administration matters)

For our school, the following arrangements apply:

Grades P-2 3:00pm finish

Grades 3-6 3:20pm finish (All older siblings will be dismissed from their classrooms at 3:00pm and will meet and be dismissed at the same gate as the YOUNGEST sibling)

Dismissal gates have been clearly signed and details are as follows:

Dismissal Gates from 12 October

We ask families to follow our guidelines in the interest of the entire school and community.
