Dear parents and carers - it is with much enthusiasm and happiness that I begin to share with you the arrangements for our return to onsite learning. Please click the 'read more' link to continue reading the information about our return to school.

The Victorian Government has announced the Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan, which is based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, sets out the staged return to onsite learning in Term 4, with the plan being that all students return onsite by Friday 5 November as follows:

Remote and flexible learning will be delivered to students on the days they are not onsite. Vulnerable children and children of parents or guardians who are on the authorised provider and authorised worker list can continue attending onsite.

Getting vaccinated is the best way to be protected from and prevent the spread of COVID-19. I encourage all students aged 12 years and over and their parents to get vaccinated as soon as possible. To book a vaccination appointment go to coronavirus.vic.gov.au.

Disability Liaison Officers (DLOs) can help people with a disability access health services, including vaccinations. Contact a DLO by either
• completing the online form Request for Disability Liaison Officer support
• emailing DLOcoordinator@dhhs.vic.gov.au.

I look forward to welcoming all of our beautiful students back on site in the coming weeks.

We ask that parents DO NOT ENTER the school site, teachers will be waiting for our Foundation (Prep) students at the front gate. Remember to wear your masks. Some of our teachers and I are still completing our isolation period and will return on Tuesday or Wednesday after confirming a negative result.

If you have any questions in relation to these dates, please reach out to your homegroup teachers.

Kind regards,
