Term 4: Onsite Bookings:  

 

Monday 4 October until Friday 15 October

Bookings close 4pm Friday 24th September

Dear Families,

 

The Victorian Government has announced the Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan.
The Roadmap, which is based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, sets out the staged return to onsite learning during Term 4.


In the letter sent via email, the Department of Education and Training provides information for families, outlining the stages and dates for a staggered return for different year levels from the beginning of the third week of Term 4.


This will, however, depend on final advice from health authorities closer to each stage.


Remote Learning will continue for all year levels for the first two weeks of Term 4. 


The department has advised that in the second week of the holidays all schools will receive more information regarding the staged return of students to onsite learning and we will provide further updates as these become available.

 

For students who have parents/carers that are approved essential workers or otherwise meet the Departments criteria for the provision of onsite supervision from Monday 4 October until Friday 15 October, we require requests to be submitted by Friday 24 September at 4.00pm.  Please submit requests for onsite supervision using the following link: https://forms.gle/hThAdVfzrEQVhvxM7

 

All information must be completed for your booking to be received. 

This includes providing signed and dated permitted worker forms for the week beginning Monday 4 October via email to: onsite@bfps.vic.edu.au


Onsite supervision is to be provided for students in the following categories, as stated by the Department of Education and Training:

The Delta strain of the virus is evident across all age groups including school age children.

Category A:  Children where both parents and/or carers are authorised workers who cannot work from home, work for an essential provider and where no other supervision arrangements can be made.

·         Where there are two parents/carers, both must be authorised workers, working outside the home in                  order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision. Both worker permits need to be provided.

   Or

·         For single parents/carers, the authorised worker must be working outside the home in order for their                children to be eligible for on-site provision. Worker Permit must be provided

Category B:  Children experiencing vulnerability, including:

·         in out-of-home care

·         deemed vulnerable by a government agency, funded family or family violence service, and assessed as            requiring education and care outside the family home

·         identified by a school or early childhood service as vulnerable, (including via referral from a government            agency, or funded family or family violence service, homeless or youth justice service or mental health              or other health service)

·         Where a parent/carer indicates that a student with a disability is vulnerable because they cannot learn              from home, and/or informs the school the student is vulnerable due to family stress. The school will                  contact you to discuss on-site supervision for the student

 

Families requesting onsite supervision are to:

1.       Carefully read the criteria for on-site supervision above

2.       Submit the onsite booking form via: https://forms.gle/hThAdVfzrEQVhvxM7 

3.       Email a current Permitted Workers Permit for authorised workers, signed by your employer, with   the                current date; to: onsite@bfps.vic.edu.au

There is support available from a variety of agencies within the Frankston City Council:

The restrictions in place are to support the health of our students, staff and families. The restrictions emphasise staying at home to reduce exposure to the virus and reduce the spread of the virus. We want our community to stay safe and healthy.

Please note that students who attend on site may be working with different staff members and in different classrooms during this period. 

Students can access the site from 8:45am; parents are to remain at the gates. Please do not park in the staff carpark. 

If you need to access the school site, please contact the office via phone on 9782 1333. 

All students will meet at the basketball court at 8:45am to be allocated to their learning area for the day.

 

 

Please take care during the school holiday break.
