Dear parents and carers
The Victorian Government has announced new arrangements for schools in Victoria from and including Friday 18 June.
From 11.59pm tonight, schools in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria will now operate under the same settings.
This letter is also to provide you with important information about a new update on the health directions under which all schools will be required to operate.
The use of Service Victoria QR codes for electronic record keeping is mandatory for all workplaces to enable the effective contact tracing of any COVID-19 cases.
This now includes all education sector workplaces, including schools.
QR codes will be required to be used by:
QR code check ins will not be required for staff or students.
All building entry and exit points will now display QR code posters.
If you are required to enter buildings on school grounds, for whatever purpose, you are now required to use the provided QR code check-in.
If you are not able to check in using a smartphone or tablet, a Kiosk check-in service is available at the main office.
Using the QR code system does not replace the existing requirement to also sign in at reception.
Thank you for your support and understanding of this important health direction.
Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or contact the school if you have any concerns.
