Information for Parents


15/7/2020

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

As you would be aware, the Victorian Government has made some significant announcements in relation to arrangements for schools in Victoria for Term 3.

 

Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, Victorian Government schools in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire schools will return to remote and flexible learning from Monday 20th July until further notice.

 

The purpose of these changed arrangements is to reduce the number of these students – and their parents and guardians – moving across metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

Department advice is that students who can learn from home must learn at home.

Students whose parents cannot work from home and who cannot make alternative arrangements for at-home supervision and vulnerable students are able to attend school for on-site supervision.  Where parents or carers choose, students with disabilities will also be able to attend on-site. This choice will apply to any students with disabilities.

 

If your child/ren requires on-site supervision during remote and flexible learning, please complete the On-Site Supervision request and return to the school via email.  On-Site Supervision Request

 

Stevensville will follow similar arrangements to those we put in place for remote and flexible learning in Term 2. We will continue to use Google Classroom to provide online learning for your child. This term we will also be sending home Learning Packs to support remote and flexible learning.  

 

Learning packs will be available for collection on Friday 17th July. Further details on pick up times will be provided on Thursday 16th July

 

Stevensville will continue to provide devices for students who do not have one at home. These will be available for collection on Friday 17th July.

 

If your child requires a device, and we did not provide one during Term 2 please contact the school on 9366 1381.

 

We will continue to use the school website, Facebook and email to provide information to our families.

 

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Leanne Keane

Principal
