Principal's Update 18th September 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,
What an interesting term it has been for everyone. Thank you to the many parents who have emailed to thank the staff for their hard work. On behalf of our school I would like to say ‘Thank You’ to all the students, parents and carers for your continued resilience, enthusiasm and support during Term Three. Our students have continued to make valuable progress in their learning.
Subject to the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, the Victorian Government has released a staged approach for students to return to on-site schooling.
For Ashwood School this means:
5th – 9th October

  • remote and flexible learning will continue for all students
  • on-site supervision for children of permitted workers and vulnerable students will continue to be provided, consistent with existing guidelines.

 12th  October onwards

  • all students will return to on-site schooling.

 There may be some parents who are not ready for their children to return to school. We will work out a plan around this with Webex calls etc and a home learning program. Please let me know if you wish to do this.
There will be more information during the holidays about the plans for Term Four. Please keep your eyes out for another email.
In the meantime if you wish to remain healthy and active you may like to access the Active Ashwood program which has been placed on the Ashwood ClickView library.
Please take care of yourselves and each other.
Kind Regards
Helen
