As you will be aware there is concern in the community about COVID-19 (Corona Virus). We will continue to keep you informed of any information shared by the Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services.
If you are choosing to keep your child at home:
please spend a couple of minutes entering the absence on COMPASS. If you are experiencing problems with this process please ring the office and report the absence.
If your child is unwell, refrain from sending them to school.
Learning at home
If you are concerned about your children’s learning, fortunately you have access to Reading Eggs and Mathletics. Please utilise these online resources. If we are directed to close the school, further information regarding an online approach to teaching and learning will be communicated.
Check in with your children regularly. Information on media has reached saturation point and as a result can raise anxiety levels in all of us. The following video may assist you when talking to your child about the current situation. SchoolTV’s special video report on how parents, carers and teachers can help children and young people deal with any anxiety they may be experiencing as a result of media coverage of the COVID-19 outbreak. It is clear and fact based.
