Principals Note and Restriction Update
On Friday we were thrilled to hear that the Victorian Government has announced an easing of restrictions.
As directed by the Victorian Chief Health Officer, from 11.59pm Friday 26 February, face masks are no longer mandatory in all indoor spaces in the broader community. However, masks are still required in limited indoor settings, such as public transport, commercial passenger vehicles and large retail settings.
At schools, this means that face masks are no longer mandatory in all indoor spaces for school staff and secondary school students aged 12 or older.
However, there are still requirements for the use of masks which are explained below.
- Face masks are recommended, but not mandatory, for use by staff, students and parents when physical distancing of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained.
- People aged 12 years and over MUST always carry a face mask – unless they have a lawful exemption.
- People aged 12 years and over must wear a face mask when on public transport, school buses and when in taxis or ride share vehicles – unless they have a lawful exemption.
- There are a number of lawful excuses for not wearing a face mask, including for staff and students who are unable to wear a face mask due to the nature of their disability. This includes students or staff who have a medical condition, such as a breathing problem, a serious skin condition on the face, or a mental health condition.
- Please ensure that your child has a facemask when they leave home for school.
- We encourage parents to call the Front Office on (03) 8762 6839 for all queries and concerns.
- Please try to be conscious of/minimise visits onsite where possible.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the Front Office or Sub School. I hope you had a fantastic weekend.
