We trust that you all have been staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. Thank you to all the families who have been working at home with their children over the past few weeks. The teachers have been very excited to see the online responses and submissions during our trial and test phase of the online platforms. Our school community has embraced CONNECT as our communication tool and the teachers are feeling confident about delivering education to all students in Term 2.
We have been in constant communication with the Director General of the WA Department of Education since the beginning of this pandemic. We received a directive from Lisa Rodgers (DG) outlining the expectations for Open Education in Term 2 at public schools.
It outlined that:
We must highlight that our first priority is the health of all students, staff, parents, carers and families in the Ardross Primary School community. This means that it is vital the guidelines for students attending school are adhered to.
Guidelines for sending your child to school in Term 2:
If your child/ren fall/s under one of the categories listed above and you DO NOT have the capacity to keep them at home then attending school is acceptable. To register your child as attending school in Term 2 please email email@example.com with the following details ASAP:
1) Child’s name
2) Year Level and Classroom Teachers
3) Reason for child attending in line with the guidelines
All students at Ardross Primary School will receive exactly the same teaching and learning program regardless of whether they are learning from home or attending school. It is imperative that we have a consistent approach for all students in Term 2.
Thank you for your constant support and care for all members of the community. There has been countless acts of good will and the staff are especially appreciative.
