Return to School Information Following advice from the Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government and Catholic Education, schools can begin a phased return to onsite schooling. In the first stage, students in Prep, Year 1 and Year 2 will return to school from Tuesday 26th May. To support all school staff to prepare for this transition, Monday 25th May will be a student-free day. This means the school will be closed to all students, including essential workers and vulnerable students. In the second stage, of our return to onsite school, all other levels, Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 will return to school from Tuesday 9th June. For those students who cannot be supervised at home and vulnerable children, the existing model of onsite school will remain in place during the two-week period from Tuesday 26th May to Friday 5th June. All other students (Years 3-6), will continue learning from home until their return on Tuesday 9th June. Once a year level has returned, all students are expected to attend school as normal. This means if you choose to keep your child/children home after their year level has returned to onsite schooling, we can no longer support their learning from home. This approach is being taken by all Catholic and Government schools in Victoria. To continue to support the health and wellbeing of students and staff, our school will continue an enhanced cleaning routine and will encourage frequent hand washing or hand sanitising. If your child is ill or is feeling unwell, they must not attend school. They must remain home and seek medical advice. Upon return a medical certificate will be required. While the Chief Health Officer has advised that students will not be required to maintain physical distancing at school, there will be a number of important changes to school operations, consistent with health advice to all schools. This will be made available in next week’s newsletter. For now, these will apply until further notice. it is important to note that changes include: - adjusted arrangements for drop off and pick up, including staggered school start and finish times restrictions to access to the school site for anyone other than immediate school staff and students the way we conduct learning conversations. Again, in next week’s newsletter these details will be further communicated. We understand that some families may feel anxious about this move back to classroom teaching and learning. This decision has been taken on the basis of the best health advice available in our state. More information about the return to school and Coronavirus (COVID 19) can be found on the CECV website, which will continue to be undated: Thank you again for your continued support and patience during this time. We look forward to welcoming students back to the classroom.
Google Meet Instructions English & Vietnamese (attached) 24th April 2020 Dear Parents, Thank you for your continued commitment and partnership with the school on the Remote Learning platforms and processes we have undertaken so far.  To enhance this our school will be looking to introduce Google Meet from Prep to Year 6.  Calls to students will be scheduled by the teacher and students should check their Seesaw (Prep-2) or Google Classroom (Years 3-6) for details, times and dates. Please note, students only have the ability to receive calls from their teacher and not make calls. Guide for Prep - 2 via the Google Meet App on their iPads. If you do not have Google Meet as an app on  your iPad, you will need to download it. For all Prep students you will be receiving your child’s school Gmail address and password through your email. Guide for Year 3 - 6 via Google Classroom (students already have this on their iPad) To ensure child safety is paramount, Google Meet allows us to have the following in place: Meets can only be created by a teacher and therefore no unsupervised Meets are possible using the school account. Users from outside the school are blocked from joining the call. Teachers are alerted if anyone is trying to access the video call without a school email account. All Meet video calls will be recorded for eSafety purposes Our school has chosen to have the following expectations for all students joining a Meet: Microphones to be muted before joining the call. Teachers will call upon students to talk and at that time they are able to turn on their microphone. Video is allowed but optional for students. Ensure the video has a safe and suitable background, in a shared space, free of distractions Dress: whilst school uniform is not expected, students should be dressed in appropriate clothing for learning (i.e. no pyjamas) Google Meet is part of G Suite for Education core services (which also include Google Drive and Classroom) and is therefore subject to a privacy policy very different to a regular Google (GMail) account. To read further please check out the FAQ at the Google for Education Privacy and Security Centre. If you have any further questions about our use of Google Meet, please contact Heidi Chapman-Foehn or the school. We look forward to embracing this challenging time in education with enthusiasm and doing all we can to support students and their families. Kind regards, Mrs Joanne Webster Principal Google Meet Vietnamese Instructions
