Dear Edithvale Primary School Community
Victorian schools remain open, in line with the latest advice from Australia’s Chief Medical Officer and Victoria’s Chief Health Officer. Further information regarding school assemblies and events can be found on the Department’s website.
The decision for schools to remain open is based on the best medical and health advice.
As you would know, additional measures to respond to coronavirus (COVID-19) were announced yesterday morning, including further restrictions on public gatherings. Consequently we will NOT be holding our regular Friday assemblies until further notice.
Learning from Home website
The Department is in the process of developing a new Learning from Home website, which will be provided to all schools to assist in transitioning to Remote Learning
It also provides information about the range of online platforms and applications that are available to schools and G-Suite is most likely the platform that Edithvale Primary will opt for. This is NOT locked in stone and we understand that there could be a myriad of issues in changing the way we teach and learn that may cause disruption. We will work through these issues as they arise.
Attached is some important information on how our initial response to remote learning might look. Once again I’d like to thank you for your understanding and ogoing supoort at this time and I hope that you and your families stay healthy in the coming days, weeks and months.
