Return to School – Limited Students

Dear parents and carers,

The Victorian Government has announced changes to schooling in regional Victoria.

Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, students in Prep to Grade 2 and students in Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) Units 3/4 and final year Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) and International Baccalaureate (IB) students enrolled in schools in regional Victoria (except for Greater Shepparton) will attend on-site from Friday 10 September.

The existing remote learning program will continue for other year levels, with on-site supervision only available for those students who were previously eligible for on-site supervision under the vulnerable children or children of authorised workers category.

Students who qualify under these criteria must:
– complete the required attendance request form with supporting evidence of authorised worker permit,
– be on time and attend school for the entire school day,
– in school uniform, and
– comply with all usual requirements for engagement, mobile phones, equipment and instruction,
– comply with all COVID protocols including provision and use of masks and sanitiser,
– sign in and out via the school office.

No additional students in Years 7 to 11 will be able to attend on-site.

School staff and secondary school students aged 12 or older must always wear a face mask indoors andĀ outdoors at school, including on school buses, unless a lawful exception applies (such as eating, drinkingĀ or exercising).

We look forward to welcoming some classes back to face-to-face learning, and will ensure that remaining year levels
undertaking remote and flexible learning continue to be supported.
