Dear parents and carers,
At 1pm today the Premier announced a 5-day lockdown across the State to combat the Covid-19 outbreak in Melbourne.
Schools will be closed until Wednesday, with the intention of re-opening on Thursday morning depending on any further announcements.
Monday has been designated a planning day by the Education Department and there will be no classes on that day.
We will move to remote learning from Tuesday morning. All students are asked to log in to their homeroom meetings on Tuesday morning via Teams to get further instructions for the day.
Students will be expected to log in to every class via Teams at the scheduled times for each lesson to get directions from their teachers. Teachers will offer a mix of ‘real time’ learning and ‘any time’ learning tasks to be completed. Some lessons will not require attendance for the full hour, but they must attend the start of each class for their attendance to be recorded.
Students have been asked to take their possessions with them at the close of school today. Their devices and chargers will be essential items to connect with their classes. Any students who were absent today can come to reception on Monday morning and we will assist them to access their possessions.
This is another unwanted interruption for our students, but we are in a strong position to hit the ground running on Tuesday with systems and processes in place to continue learning.
Please note the parent information nights for Years 8 and 10 scheduled for next week have been cancelled. We will produce videos and share those with families as soon as we can.
As further information becomes available, we will distribute it via email, on our website, through Facebook and in short text messages. This is an evolving situation so we will advise of any significant changes.
Your contact points with the College remain the same. You can email Year Level Co-ordinators, homeroom teachers and subject teachers with your queries. You can phone the school on 52339200.
Essential services workers with no other care options for their children, and households without internet access, should email email@example.com with requests for care here at school.
Paul Clohesy, Principal
