Onsite attendance for Wed 20 May - Tues 26 May


Dear Families,

Thank you for helping us support and manage the Victorian Government’s directive- that all students who can learn from home must learn from home.
It is important that we continue to recognise and acknowledge the reasons for implementing a remote learning from home platform, this is because having around a million children and their parents in closer contact with teachers and other support staff has the potential to increase cases of coronavirus not just in schools but across the community.

By having remote learning, it can contribute to physical distancing and therefore supports efforts to drive transmission down.

For a limited number of students we are providing On-site learning and care. This is available for children of parents who have exhausted all other options for getting supervision of their child– older siblings, carers etc. and cannot work from home.

Please see attached onsite request form for Wednesday 20 May – Tuesday 26 May

This form needs to be completed and returned via email (edithvale.ps@edumail.vic.gov.au) by midday Friday 15 May to ensure that your child has been approved a position to be able to be supervised at school.

You will receive a confirmation letter via email on Friday afternoon to confirm your child’s attendance days for next week. If you do not receive this confirmation letter we do not have your child registered for onsite supervision for any days next week (Monday – Friday).

This is needed each week to ensure adequate staffing on-site can be sourced.

We will be unable to accommodate any students that we do not have on our register.

Supervision will mostly be carried out by a combination of our Integration Staff and Casual Relief Teachers.

Students will be supervised doing either

  • Learning tasks set by class teachers using SEESAW, MangaHigh, Sunshine online OR
  • Undertaking their own quiet, individual and independent activities they have brought from home (eg-jigsaws, books to read, mindfulness colouring, personal writing etc)

To ensure consistency with physical distancing measures, students and families will not be permitted to congregate before or after school, in classrooms or in the playground and will be required to maintain 1.5 meters between persons as far as is practicable at all times.

Please stay safe, healthy and connected
