Dear Birralee families,
Further to the information that you have provided regarding supervision for the children of parents who both work in sectors with a vital function in society, we would like to give you details as to how the supervision will be organised.
07:30 students can be dropped off at school- parents should remain outside
Students should come into school and wash their hands
Students should then place their outside clothes on the rack outside the Year 3 classroom
Students will be supervised throughout the day to complete the work and activities that have been set by their teachers
Students will run by the usual school day timings of:
10:00-10:30 Break (wash hands when coming in from playtime)
12:00-13:00 Lunch (wash hands before eating)
14:30-15:00 Break (wash hands when coming in from playtime)
16:30 end of the day
During the day, the students are expected to spend part of their day using their devices so that they do not have whole days of screen time. In addition, they will have time in the playground during their breaks so that they are not inside all day. The playground will not be available for other children.
It is important to note that the member of staff who will be supervising the students is not taking the role of the teacher, but the normal class or subject teacher will be available via email, Seesaw or Google Classroom.
What your child should bring with them
A snack for the two breaks and lunch- the school will not be providing food this week
Their school Chromebook with charger/fully charged. (A school iPad is available for the Year 1 and Year 2 students should they need this for their school work.)
A water bottle
As with a normal school day, please inform the school office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 47 97 00 86) to let us know that your child(ren) is/are ill. Also if you will be late to pick up your child please telephone: 47 97 00 86
It is very important that if your child is exhibiting any cold-like or respiratory symptoms that they do not come into school. Please also keep the school informed of any Corona-like illnesses and/or Corona-testing in the child’s immediate family.
