Welcome back to term 3. What a crazy unfortunate start to this term. I would like to congratulate you for following the expectations set by our Government and Education Department. Incredible thanks must go to teaching and support staff who worked extremely hard to prepare work packs that were sent home with students. Thank you to our amazing students for working on your work packs. I thoroughly enjoyed checking in with students via TEAMS on a daily basis. It was interesting to hear what they had been doing whilst in lock down. From making pizza, cooking biscuits, cleaning their rooms, painting and completing science experiments our students learnt a lot whilst they were away from school.
If we were to have another forced lock down as a school we need to know why your student is absent from school. They are: Working from home due to COVID lockdown, sick or family reasons. By signing into TEAMS daily we register your child as working from home due to COVID lockdown (Day/ explained) What we cannot have is an unexplained absence. You may have had staff call you to identify the reason for your child’s absence during lockdown. This is my Department’s process and one we must enforce. We as a school and as a system must know where every student is every day. This is the reason for the follow up phone calls. Thank you for all of your support through this time.
I will keep you posted as to any changes to restrictions as soon as they can be advertised.
We are happy to have our students back at school and look forward to getting back to our new normal.
Thank you once again for your support during this latest lock down. Please keep safe.
