Dear parents and carers,
The following information came through from DET on Friday afternoon
The Victorian Government further relaxed its COVIDSafe settings from 6pm last Friday, 26 March 2021.
Changes to the COVIDSafe settings include allowing more visitors in the home, changes to mask wearing in some settings and updates to density limits in some settings. There are limited operational changes for schools.
Visitors continue to be welcomed at our school, however face masks must be carried by individuals 12 years and over at all times and worn when physical distancing of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained.
There is no requirement to limit the number or type of visitors to school premises. However the density limit of 1 person per 2 square metres should continue to be applied to any space or activity being attended by parents/carers and other visitors. The density limit applies to all persons in the space, including students. For the time being this means that we will continue to hold whole school assemblies outdoors so that parents and carers have the chance to attend.
Individuals aged 12 years and over must continue to wear a face mask when on public transport, school buses and when in taxis or ride share vehicles – unless they have a lawful exemption.
Thank you for your understanding and support throughout this term as we continue to implement COVIDSafe practices at our school.
I look forward to welcoming our students and families back to more school events in Term 2.
