As part of the government’s strategies, it has been made very clear that if your child CAN remain at home they MUST STAY AT HOME. This has been a clear direction from the Government through the Department of Education and Training. The school is not open in the normal sense. You have a duty of care for your child and as a member of this community to protect them and everyone else from the spread of this virus. Therefore, they MUST stay at home.

A Care and Supervision Program 9am-3.30pm is only available for those families of Essential Workers who cannot work from home and cannot make alternative care arrangements.

The Victorian Government has stated that all students who can learn from home must learn from home.

Children who are unwell or have symptoms consistent with those of COVID-19 MUST NOT attend school.

Note also that care is only offered for the days of the week where care is required.
On Monday 03/08/2020 the Premier released a statement on business restrictions covered under the new Stage 4 Restrictions. (https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/updates/coronavirus-covid-19/premiers-statement-business-restrictions)

It states that on-site supervision will be available for Prep -10 students in the following categories, based on revised criteria:
• children whose parents work in one of the defined essential continuing industries
• vulnerable children including:
o children in out-of-home care
o children deemed by Child Protection and/or Family Services to be at risk of harm
o children identified by the school as vulnerable (including via referral from a family violence agency, homelessness or youth justice service or mental health or other health service).
• children with a disability who also fit one of the above two categories, or where the family is experiencing severe stress.

As such, we have put in place more stringent criteria for parents wanting to access our onsite learning supervision. Both parents must provide a copy of their Permitted Worker Permit from their employer indicating that they are a Permitted Worker and are required to work onsite at their workplace during school supervision hours.

If you fall into the Permitted Worker category and have no other means of care for your child, please fill in the online registration form each week and also supply a copy of your Permitted Worker Permit to lyndhurst.ps@education.vic.gov.au

Applications for onsite supervision, along with copies of Permitted Worker Permits must be received by the due date each week so that staffing levels can be assessed.
