Term 3 Remote Learning

Dear Parents,
 
Thank you for your ongoing support as we continue to navigate our way through new challenges.
 
As you will be aware, a return to remote learning was announced by the Victorian Government yesterday, scheduled to commence from this Wednesday 5th August.

Details for this are as follows:
 
Timeline
Monday 3rd August students have been asked to take home all materials from their lockers in preparation for remote learning
Tuesday 4th August will be a student free day for all students
Wednesday 5th August Remote learning recommences for all students. 
·       The normal school timetable will continue during remote learning
·       Students should be using their subject materials, as well as their device to access Compass and Google Classroom and follow the coursework provided by their teachers.
Thursday 6th August: Remote learning continues 
Friday 7th August: Pupil free day 
From Monday 10th August: Remote learning continues 
 
Student Attendance
Students who can learn at home must do so. Attendance on-site is limited to:
·       Children whose parents cannot work from home
·       Vulnerable children
·       Any child with a disability
Families whose children fall into one of the above categories who wish their child to attend onsite need to complete the request form, available on the school’s website later this week, and provide this to school on the Thursday before the week of attendance. Buses will run as normal for students needing to attend on-site.
 
Students requiring devices
Please complete the survey on Facebook/SMS indicating your child/ren’s need for devices or internet connection. These should be ready for collection by 12:30pm this Wednesday 5th August.
 
 
Work collection/drop off
Families who feel that they will require hard-copies of work should discuss this with their child’s teacher/s. Work will be able to be dropped off and collected from the front office on Wednesdays 12:30pm-3:30pm during remote learning.
 
We would like to also take this opportunity to thank you for your support of your child’s learning during this challenging time. We’d like to acknowledge the emotional challenges that learning remotely presents for students and families and pass on our understanding that at some points over the coming weeks, your priorities for your family may lie outside of schoolwork and study. We wish you all the best as we face these difficulties and we invite you to contact us if there is further support that we might be able to provide.

Kind regards,
