Why have we started a transition back to school-based learning?
Following updated advice from health authorities and as announced by the Queensland Government, state schools will begin a transition back to school-based learning for students.
We want to take the earliest possible action to allow students to resume on-site learning and are taking a phased approach to progressively bring students back to school.
From Monday 11 May 2020, students in the following year levels will return to on-site learning at all state schools, including special schools:
Prep and Year 1; and
Year 11 and 12.
Students in the following categories will also be able to attend school:
- Children of essential workers when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. Essential worker means any worker who must continue to attend their workplace for essential business.
- Vulnerable children including children identified by schools or who:
- are currently receiving services from Child Safety, including children who are subject to a child protection order;
- are subject to a youth justice order.
- Children in designated Indigenous communities.
- Children attending Kindy.
What arrangements will apply for students in Year 2 to Year 10?
Students in Years 2 to 10 will continue with learning at home arrangements at this time, unless they fall into one of the above categories and are attending school under the current arrangements.
Where a student is learning at home, the parent or carer remains responsible for the student’s safety at home or elsewhere.
If low COVID-19 transmission rates continue, students in Years 2 to 10 will return to school from Monday 25 May 2020. Confirmation of this step will be made by 15 May 2020.
What arrangements are required for students who choose not to attend school?
Students in Prep, Year 1, Year 11 and Year 12 are expected to attend school and participate in classroom learning from Monday 11 May 2020.
The classroom teacher is not responsible for providing an alternative learning at home program for students in Prep, Year 1, Year 11 or Year 12 where parents elect to keep these students at home. However, if parents of these children contact you, you may wish to discuss with them ways they can best support their child at home.
Parents will be able to access the learning@home resources via the website, schools do not need to provide a home-based learning program for these students. Students in senior years would continue to follow their learning program. General Information
