DURING COVID


COVID-19

COVID-19 Attendance Form -  This form MUST be filled out and completed weekly, and approved by the Principal.

 

NEW RESTRICTIONS FOR ON-SITE ATTENDANCE

 

The new term 3 ONSITE ATTENDANCE FORM has changed and now is BLUE

 

Please be notified that forms that have been submitted previous to this time have been accepted. Please use the Blue forms from now on.

 

Following on from the Premier’s latest announcement of the Stage 4 Restrictions, the Department of Education and Training have issued further restrictions on students who attend on site.

 

From this Wednesday 5 August, the criteria for students who can attend on-site has changed as follows:

  • children whose parents are permitted workers.
  • vulnerable children in out of home care, children known to child protection and other agencies and children the school identifies as vulnerable
  • children with a disability who also fit one of the above two categories.

Please note, this criteria is strict and must be adhered to by all members of the community.  No exceptions will be made outside of the above categories.  We must all do our part to eliminate this pandemic, and as much as we understand that this may be hard at times for families, the direction is quite clear that students who fit the above categories are the only students who can attend school.

 

 

PERMITTED WORKER PERMIT (including child care)

PERMITTED WORKER PERMIT (including child care). From 11.59pm Wednesday 5 August all permitted workers and employers in greater metropolitan Melbourne during coronavirus (COVID-19) stage 4 restriction, who are still required to leave home for work must carry a work permit, which must be presented to law enforcement on demand.

 

Carrying a worker permit

Employees must carry the worker permit and should carry photo identification when travelling to and from the workplace. A worker permit can be shown electronically to authorities such as a photo, or scanned copy, on a mobile device.

 

Childcare Permit

From Thursday 6 August, only the children of permitted workers and vulnerable kids will be able to access childcare and kinder.

For the purposes of childcare and kinder, a permitted worker can also include someone working from home.

This section provides information to parents and guardians on how they can seek a permit to access childcare. Early childhood providers should use these permits to enable access to care.

 

For workers who need to work onsite

The Permitted Worker Permit (including childcare) form includes an addendum for permitted workers who are still required to attend work onsite and who don’t have anyone else in the household who can supervise their children.

Reasons for this might include the other parent also being a permitted worker or because it is a single parent household.

The employee is required to fill the childcare section of the form out. You must tick the box indicating you are seeking access to onsite childcare and kindergarten.

You do not need to carry the Permitted Worker Permit (including childcare) in addition to the Permitted Worker Permit – only one document is required.

If you are not seeking access to childcare as a permitted worker, you can continue to use the Permitted Worker Permit form.
