Letter for Parents – East Hamersley Campus

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

As of today, Tuesday 28 April, we have 36 students returning to LDC classes at the East Hamersley campus, 4 learning at home and a further 1 who have not yet decided or not replied.

School Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

The Premier has advised that parents/carers are not to be on school sites. Below are the protocols for parents/carers when dropping your child off in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon.

Drop off time: 8:30 am – 8:50 am. Please watch your child enter their classroom from the allocated parent area. Kindy students can enter from the gate on Doon Road. For pre-primary and year ones, a staff member will be near the allocated parent area to assist students.

Pick up time: 2:40 pm – 3:00 pm. A staff member will dismiss your child to you in the afternoons. Please wait in your allocated area.

• Ensure you maintain at least a 1.5m distance from other families.

Please leave the school as soon as your child has entered their classroom in the morning, and as soon as you have collected your child in the afternoon.

If you are dropping your child off late (after 8:50am) or picking your child up early (prior to 2:40pm) please phone the office on 9401 5433. Please do not go to your child’s classroom or the East Hamersley office. A staff member will meet you at the allocated parent area. If you need to give anything to your teacher (e.g. forms, medication) please place in child’s school bag with an accompanying note.

Sick Students

If your child is unwell for any reason (e.g. cough, temperature, fatigue, sore throat, nasal congestion, headache, gastro symptoms) please keep your child at home. The same will apply to staff, with unwell staff staying at home. If your child appears unwell at school, we will call you to collect them (in your allocated area).

Safety Measures

Additional safety measures at school include:

• All students hand washing for 20 secs multiple times during the school day.

• Encouraging students not to touch others at all times.

• Additional cleaning, including disinfecting hard surfaces and play equipment throughout the school day.

• No assemblies or excursions.

• Where possible, spacing students apart in the classroom and for eating times.

Class Dojo

Please ensure that you are connected to your child’s Class Dojo. This will be the main means of classroom communication this term. Contact the office if you are unable to connect to Dojo.

We will continue to keep you updated with the latest information. Thank you for your support.
