COVID-19 Stage 3
This week the Premier has announced the return of Stage 3 restrictions across greater Melbourne for a period of 6 weeks.
BNPS is awaiting detailed advice and guidance from the Department of Education.
Here is a summary of what the Department has communicated to us:
- There will be five ‘pupil free’ days from Monday 13 July through to Friday 17 July for all BNPS students.
- BNPS teachers and staff will attend on site during that week to:
- prepare for a possible move to remote and flexible learning from Monday 20 July;
- provide a program of care and supervision for those students whose parents/carers cannot work from home and for vulnerable students.
What you can do now:
- Discuss with your children, and explain the situation to them;
- Monitor Compass and the BNPS Website for updates, which will be communicated to you as soon as possible following advice from the Department;
- Check that you have the ‘Compass’ app on your smart phone and that you can receive and view messages from the School;
- Find and note the passwords that your children require for their learning systems, such as Teams, Mathletics, etc.
