Due to the ongoing level of community transmission of coronavirus in Victoria, the current lockdown across Melbourne will be extended until 11:59pm on Thursday 2 September.
To help slow the spread of the virus, we need your support in complying with the new strengthened restrictions and helping our public health team to get ahead of this virus.
We request parents, carers and families continue to do the right thing by following all health directives. This includes making careful and supportive choices about accessing on-site supervision at school.
From tomorrow, Wednesday 18 August, under the new strengthened restrictions in place across metropolitan Melbourne, an authorised worker permit will be required for authorised workers to attend a workplace.
This also means that from tomorrow, parents and carers in metropolitan Melbourne can only request on-site supervision for their child/ren in the below categories:
Parents and carers who are authorised workers will need an authorised worker permit from their employers to access on-site supervision for their child/ren in Category A.
On-site supervision continues to be available for the below students:
An authorised worker permit is not required for accessing on-site supervision under Category B.
Those who meet the above categories and require on-site learning for their child/ren should contact the Principal.
For those requesting on-site learning under Category A, a copy of your authorised worker permit or permits must be submitted to the school as soon as practicable after it is issued. A permit is not required under Category B.
I know this may well be a challenging time. There are a number of supports available. These include:
As part of the phased COVID-19 vaccination rollout, more Victorian parents, carers, and students are now able to receive the COVID-19 vaccines.
With more appointments now available over the next two weeks, we encourage you to book your vaccine at Victorian Government’s COVID-19 vaccine online booking system.
I trust our school community will ensure we do the right thing at this time, by complying with the restrictions in place and making careful and supportive decisions that limit movement through the community.
Thank you again, for supporting your child’s learning during this time.
