Dear parents and carers
Yesterday the Acting Premier announced new circuit breaker restrictions for Victoria to swiftly address the current COVID-19 outbreak.

The restrictions will be in place from 11.59pm Thursday 27th May until 11.59 Thursday 3rd June.
Following advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, all Victorian schools now move to a period of remote and flexible learning from Monday 31 May to Thursday June 3rd inclusive.
Today (Friday 28 May) is a student-free day to allow schools time to prepare. Remote learning will begin on Monday 31 May.
All students will begin each day by checking in with their Home Group teacher through Teams . This will occur at 9am each morning. Teaching will then follow the current Term 2 timetable.
YEARS 7-10

VCE
• All other classes will run as normal through till Thursday June 3rd.
• . Exams will not take place next week
• . Teachers will continue with course work.

As with other remote learning periods, our school will provide on-site supervision for students in the following categories:

Children where both parents and/or carers are authorised workers who cannot work from home, work for an essential provider and where no other supervision arrangements can be made:
– Where there are two parents/carers, both must be authorised workers, working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision
– For single parents/ carers, the authorised worker must be working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision.

Children experiencing vulnerability, including:
– children in out-of-home care
– children deemed vulnerable by a government agency, funded family or family violence service, and is assessed as requiring education and care outside the family home
– children identified by a school or early childhood service as vulnerable, including via referral from a government agency, or funded family or family violence service, homeless or youth justice service or mental health or other health service.

If your child requires on-site supervision, please contact the general office on 94650844.
Information is available to support your child’s learning from home.
Kind regards
