The Queensland Government has decided that, in order to reinforce social distancing across the community and slow the spread of COVID-19, students will move to a home-based learning model from 20 April 2020 until at least 22 May 2020 (Weeks 1 to 5 of Term 2). A decision about the remainder of Term 2 will be made by mid-May. During this period, all students who are able to be supervised at home and learn from home are to stay home.
As was the case for the student-free days prior to school break, there will be exceptions for some students who will continue to be able to attend school: those whose parents or carers work in essential roles and must attend their workplace and cannot access alternative care, students identified as vulnerable, and students in designated Indigenous communities.
Each week, we will ask parents of these children to advise the school if they require their children to be supervised at school during this period.
Updated protocols and information will be made aware to parents as it becomes available. Thank you all for your patience and understanding at this time as we all try and navigate these unfamiliar waters.
