I just want to take this opportunity to thank parents for your understanding and calm, positive approach to yesterday’s Covid-19 virus update. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, the school will review its processes and procedures.
It is important that as a school community we apply a common sense, factual and practical approach to COVID-19.
Further actions to be implemented as of Wednesday 18 March
Implement a Kiss and Drop approach. In an attempt to limit the number of people onsite and in classrooms, family members are requested to adopt a Kiss and Drop procedure for all children in the morning. This means parents of younger children
(K-2) would accompany their child to the classroom and say goodbye to the child at the classroom door, without entering the classroom and then leave the grounds promptly. Parents of older children (3-6) are encouraged to say goodbye to their children at the school gate.
At the end of the day, once again we would ask parents of younger children(K-2) to collect their child from outside the classroom, older children from the school gate, and leave the school grounds promptly.
Parent helpers in Early Childhood classes are not required for the remainder of the term.
Term 1 assemblies have been postponed, including the Year 2/3 assembly scheduled for 25 March and the ANZAC assembly scheduled for 8 April.
The Year 1 excursion to Sculptures by the Sea has been cancelled.
The school has a wonderful community feel in the morning and afternoon with a great number of parents/students gathering in the school grounds, however, unfortunately at the moment we need to limit the number of people accessing the school site. I know I can count on your support in assuring these measures are implemented.
All the measures Woodlands Primary School are putting in place are preventative and aimed at maximising the safety of students, parents and staff.
