Schools have been provided a cleaning fact sheet which has been developed by the Department of Health to inform what enhanced cleaning practices should be undertaken during this time. Parents and carers on school grounds Parents and carers of primary aged students and students with additional needs are encouraged to speak directly with their school to confirm what arrangements are put in place to minimise the number of people moving in and out of the school grounds, particularly at drop off and pick up times. Where possible, minimising the number of adults entering school sites is desired. Parents and carers are encouraged to continue to regularly communicate with their childs school. It is recommended that this be done via phone or online in the first instance and if a face-to-face discussion is required, this is discussed and planned Learning from home Where families elect not to send their child to school, the child must be learning from home. Where a child is learning from home due to vulnerabilities to COVID-19 or direction by a health professional to self-isolate or quarantine, schools will provide learning (online or printed) to support the continuation of learning from home. Parents and carers can also access a range of resources on the Learning Together website to support their child if they are learning from home. Where a student is learning at home, the parent or carer is responsible for the students learning, safety and wellbeing at home or elsewhere. Parents and carers must notify their childs school if they will be learning from home and not physically attending school. As per usual practices, schools will work with students and families who are unwell or have explained absences to support their learning from home. Your school will work with any students with unexplained or unacceptable reasons for being absent from school. Students with unexplained or unacceptable reasons may be supplied with a hard copy or online learning package with further support being provided dependent on the operational capacity of the school. Additional resources to support learning from home Schools are being encouraged to loan devices to students who are required to learn from home due to vulnerabilities to COVID-19 or direction by a health professional to selfisolate or quarantine.
