Letter from Principal about Term 3.

New arrangements for Keysborough Primary School beginning term 3 are as follows:

There will be five pupil-free days from Monday 13 to Friday 17 July for all students at Keysborough Primary School as directed by the Honourable Daniel Andrews our Premier.

The school holidays have been extended for an additional week.

Teachers and staff during this coming week are not involved in on-site teaching from Monday 13 to Friday 17 July will attend on site to:

  • prepare for a possible move to remote and flexible learning from Monday 20 July;
  • provide a program of care and supervision for those students whose parents/carers cannot work from home and for vulnerable students.

The new arrangements are designed to give our health experts additional time to assess the situation in our communities and for schools to receive further information from the Department on what we are required to do.

I know that this may mean uncertainty and another period of possible remote learning for children, parents and carers. This lockdown is what it is and we must ensure that we do everything we can together to overcome COVID-19.

I will keep you updated as information on what needs to be done comes to the school.

Thank you for your understanding, support and care. However, these steps have been identified as critical measures to protect the safety of all of us. Together we must be strong, together we must do the right thing to ensure that we can move forward in the future with confidence and certainty that everyone is well and safe.

Kind Regards

Leanne Armao.
