Dear Parents and Carers,

Parent/Cares will be required to sign a contract agreement about the use, care of and return of the equipment on loan from the school on pick up of the device.

If parents/carers have any questions about this - all questions can be forwarded to the school email account and will be answered accordingly.

Internet Access Update:

For those families waiting on internet access support - we are still waiting on information from the Department of Education and Training in relation to their process for assisting families with internet access. Further information will be forwarded as we are made aware.

All of our teaching staff have been working extremely hard in preparing for remote learning - and we are really looking forward to moving forward into this new exciting realm of learning and teaching. Further information will come through your child's classroom dojo are from classroom teachers.

Dear Parents and Carers,

Update Information – On-Site Learning


Dear FPS Parents and Carers,

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 **

 

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 Tuesday 14th 12pm. 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.

Woprk is also underway to identify students who do not have access to digital technologies at home. Parents and carers will be contacted by class teachers Tuesday/ Wednesday.

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.

Just a reminder that Tuesday 14th April is a student free day and remote learning / on site learning begins Wednesday 15th April.

Warm Regards,

Renee Kennedy

Principal
