Extended restrictions for Victoria
Dear Members of the School Community,
Due to the ongoing level of community transmission of COVID-19, the Victorian Government has announced the current restrictions in place across Victoria will be extended. This means remote and flexible learning will continue at the David Scott School until the end of Term 3 (17/09). Any update or change to this will be communicated through the school’s Compass portal.
There are no changes to the current operational settings in schools or the categories of students who can attend on-site.
Supported On-Site Remote Learning
Current arrangements for supervised remote learning onsite will continue for students experiencing vulnerability. Covid safe rules as previously outlined will continue to apply.
To help support the safe conduct of end-of-year exams, the Victorian Government today announced a vaccination blitz for final year school students. The blitz will begin on 7 September and continue until 17 September. During the blitz, final year students will have access to priority timeslots to attend their vaccination appointment at a vaccination centre.
Final year students will also be able to book their first and second doses via a dedicated appointment booking hotline. These additional pathways will help support a faster booking process and minimise absence for students during their schooling hours. The Department of Health will release details of the dedicated phone number and session information on Friday, September 3.
COVID-19 and Vaccination – Your questions answered webinar
The Victorian Department of Health is hosting a live webinar for final year students, their families and educators to provide information on COVID-19 vaccination. You can join the free webinar on Friday 3 September, 4.00-5.00pm via this link (no need to register).
Topics covered include:
• Vaccines, development and safety
• Accessing and consenting to a vaccination
• How to book an appointment
• Q+A with the panel.
This event will be held via Microsoft Teams Live. For access information, visit Attend a live event in Teams.
I trust our school community will do the right thing at this time, by complying with the restrictions in place and making careful and supportive decisions that limit movement through the community.
Thank you again, for supporting your student’s learning during this time.
Please contact the school on (03) 8781 5907 with any questions.
