• Term 2 - Return to School Information


    Dear CSC community,
    Thank you for all your support during these past few weeks of remote and flexible learning. Following advice from the Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government has advised that schools can begin a phased return to on-site schooling.
    To support all school staff to prepare for this transition, Monday 25 May will be a pupil-free day.
    STAGE 1.
    In the first stage, students in senior secondary will return to school from Tuesday 26 May:

    • All year 11 and 12 students
    • Year 10 students undertaking a unit 1 / 2 VCE subject on the days their VCE subject runs. These students will continue to remain at school for the full school day on the day of their VCE subjects and complete the remote learning for other classes on site.
    Year 10 VET classes will continue to be delivered remotely until stage 2.
    For those students who cannot be supervised at home and vulnerable children, the existing model of on-site schooling will remain in place during the two-week period from Tuesday 26 May to Tuesday 9 June. The current process that we are using to enable parents and carers to indicate the days or part-days for which on-site schooling is required will continue for this two-week period.
    STAGE 2.
    In the second stage of our return to on-site schooling, all other year levels will return to school from Tuesday 9 June.  All of the following students return to school:
    • Year 7-10 students return
    Once a year level has returned, all students will be expected to attend school as normal. This means if you choose to keep your child/children home after their year level has returned to on-site schooling, we can no longer support their learning from home. This does not apply to children who need to be absent for health or medical reasons. For those families, please contact us at the following email so we can make an appropriate plan.
    If you child is ill or is feeling unwell, they must not attend school. They must remain home and seek medical advice.
    This same approach is being taken by all government schools in Victoria.
    To support the health and wellbeing of all our students and staff, our school will continue an enhanced cleaning routine and will encourage frequent hand washing.
    While the Chief Health Officer has advised that students will not be required to maintain physical distancing at school, there will be a number of important changes to our school operations. I will provide more detail about our local school context as soon as possible, but it is important to note that changes will include:
    • restrictions on access to the school site for anyone other than immediate school staff and students;
    • the way we conduct parent-teacher meetings and interviews
    We understand that some families may feel anxious about this move back to classroom teaching and learning. I can assure you that this decision has been taken on the basis of the best health advice available to our state.
    More information about the return to school and coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found on the Department’s website, which will continue to be updated:
    Thank you for your continued support and patience during this time. We look forward to welcoming our students back to the classroom.
    Yours sincerely,
    Kate Morphy
