IMPORTANT COVID UPDATE TO OATLEY PS COMMUNITY
 
Dear Parents and Carers,

Week beginning Monday 2 August, 2021. Learning from home Level 4.

We celebrated Education Week last week with the theme LIFELONG LEARNING. The teachers have created a video for all our students and parents showing some of the work that they are creating from their Learning From Home program and a very special message from all of the staff to you. We are all lifelong learners so we wanted to share this with you. Please click on our Education Week video 2021 to the right of this message.

The Learning From Home plans will now be denser including zoom wellbeing check ins starting 3-6 this week and K-2 in the following week for your child/ren. We have trialled two classes and we are very excited about the connectivity and contact with our class peers. Please ensure you have read zoom protocols and expectations found on our Learning From Home page.

Helping to keep our community safe.

I want to remind all our families that there is minimal supervision on site at our school for those students who cannot be educated at home, for example if their parent or carer is an essential worker. All students and families will be supported with learning from home materials and resources. Schools priority for staff on site are now restricted to staff who live in the Georges River LGA if possible.

If you are working from home, and your child is able to be educated from home, please keep them at home.

I want to thank all the families who have continued to support our community by keeping their children at home to minimise movement in the community. Get in touch with your teacher to discuss any additional needs for your child or family to support you to continue learning from home.

As we continue into LFH for the next month the teachers are now marking students attendance against the priority tasks that are handed in on a daily basis. Just answering the morning questions is not enough as we continue LFH. We need to ensure our students are engaged in their learning. Many teachers are also ringing parents to check in if LFH work is not being completed or we have not heard from you or your child over a few days.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Updated information will continue through website and school stream posts especially alerts and newsletter for whole school communication. Presently all scheduled events for the first month of this term have been postponed. Class teachers will continue to communicate via Class Dojo and google classroom and zoom.

Regards

Debbie Hunter
