Important Frankston Primary School Update Re: Schools


Thursday 30th July 2020

Dear Parents and Carers

Due to the uncertainty of when our students will be returning to school, our staff have decided to send home some of the student booklist resources that were purchased by you at the commencement of this year. Staff feel these resources will be useful at home to support your child’s Remote Learning activities.

The school has organised a Drive By Pick Up at the front of the school next week for all families to ensure health and safety of everyone during these difficult times.
Staff will be positioned under the Portico at the main office gate and you will be asked to drive by, lower your window and staff will pass your child’s bag(s) to you and you will be able to drive on.
We have set out a specific roster for pick up and we are asking families to adhere to these times so that pick ups runs smoothly for everyone.
We have also arranged a pick up for families with multiple children so that you are able to collect all your children’s resources on the same day.

Please ensure that you take note of the time allocated for pick up of your child’s Booklist Resource Bag.

Remote Learning Information for Parents – Term 3
Frankston Primary School

Dear Parents and Carers

Remote Learning begins next week Monday 20th July until at least August 19th.
The Education Department will communicate later this term if remote learning will extend beyond this date.
The school has posted all updated information regarding the school's requirements and processes on ClassDojo's Main Story Page and we ask ALL parents to ensure that you read this information.

 

Update Information – On-Site Learning
Click on the link below to access the On-Site Attendance Form

Following advice from the Department of Education and Training we will be moving to remote and flexible learning to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

This means that all students who can learn at home MUST learn from home.

It is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

Frankston Primary School will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. 

There is an On-Site Attendance Form that is required to be filled in and emailed should on-site learning be required for your child/ren
You must adhere to the timeline for submitting this form in order for your child to attend On-Site Learning. 

Please see this attached to the bottom of this message and also on ClassDojo's Main Story Page.

This On-Site Attendance Form includes information in regards to on-site attendance, required information to be filled in and where to email completed form.

For next week this form must be received by Thursday 16th 3pm. Following this, all forms will be required to be filled in and received by the school by Thursday each week 3pm.

Parents will receive a phone call to confirm receipt of the form.

Most of our teachers and school staff will also be working from home. All of them have been working hard to put curriculum plans in place to ensure continuity of learning and to support the wellbeing of all our students.

We were really glad to support families with school-loaned ICT devices for remote learning 1, and we are very pleased to be able to continue this support during remote learning 2!

Families who loaned ICT equipment previously shall be automatically put on our loan list and will be contacted this week to confirm ICT support. If you are new to requiring ICT device support, you should contact the school office, 9783 3769, to record your support request with the office.

All going well, we plan to have ICT devices available for pick up this week Thursday and Friday.

Please stay tuned to Class Dojo for further ICT device pick up information.

Reminder P – 2 students receive ipads and 3 – 6 students receive student netbooks (where possible).

This is clearly going to be a challenging time for all of us. It’s going to be critically important that we work very closely together to ensure that we provide the very best possible support for the ongoing wellbeing and learning of our students and your children.

 

Warm Regards,

Renee Kennedy

Principal
