Dear Families,

The Acting Premier has informed the community that a state-wide lockdown will begin from midnight tonight. I have not been provided details by the Department of Education about what is required of schools other than the information conveyed at the morning press conference requiring home based learning and some reference to remote learning. during the lockdown. Teachers will be providing/assigning students with work to continue at home, eg reading, revision practice tasks, project/assignment completion. This will transition to remote learning and each sector will provide parents details about how to access the remote learning through Compass feeds.

Student belongings:

  • Teachers of primary and supported students will be asked to prepare basic resource packs that students will take home at the end of the day and bring back to school after the lockdown is completed.
  • Secondary teachers will be instructing students to take their personal belongings home, ie, empty their locker.

Before and After School Care

If any Primary age students require Before/After care, please contact BIG Childcare on manorlakes@bigchildcare.com

Vulnerable students/Authorised Worker children:

If you require your child to be supervised at school, the survey form below needs to be completed, and your child’s attendance at school needs to be approved by the relevant person:

Secondary – Renee Liprino – renee.liprino@education.vic.gov.au

Supported – Francesca Ahearn – francesca.ahearn@education.vic.gov.au

Primary – Tsering Sherpa – tsering.sherpa@education.vic.gov.au

The Victorian Government has requested that all students who can stay at home should remain at home, to slow the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19.

We will offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home or no other arrangement can be made.

  1. For children of parents employed in authorised services who cannot work from home.
  2. For vulnerable students without access to a safe or suitable learning environment at home, and as identified by DHHS

The learning program provided at school will be identical to the learning program provided for all students working from home. Students attending school will be supervised by teachers who will be administering their own grade’s needs at the same time via remote learning. The children will not be supervised by their own classroom teachers.

Students who do attend school will be required to wear school uniform, and adhere to:

-physical distancing

-use of hand sanitiser

-usual school expectations

NO CHILD SHALL ATTEND SCHOOL WITHOUT PRIOR COMMUNICATION AND CONFIRMATION WITH THE SCHOOL.

By submitting this form, I declare that my child/ren is/are well and I will collect my child/ren as soon as practicable upon the request of the school if my child becomes unwell.

In order to make adequate provisions and meet requirements could you please fill in and return the following form by Thursday 27th May at 7:00pm, only if your child falls into the above categories as specified by the DET.

Parents who submit the form in the belief they meet this criteria will be contacted. Once parents have received approval and confirmation from the school, there will be additional booking information supplied.

Families will be informed of any additional information as it is made available.
