COVID -19   Important Information for Parents and Carers

Following advice from the Victorian Government, Bell Park North Primary School has moved back to remote and flexible learning during Term 3 (beginning with pupil-free days on Tuesday 4th and Wednesday 5th August). These arrangements will be in place until the Victorian Government advises otherwise.

This is a step all Victorian government schools have taken to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can learn at home must learn from home. This is a very clear directive from the Victorian Government based on the advice of the Chief Health Officer.

We will continue to offer limited on-site learning for those students who fall into the following categories.

  • Children of parents who cannot work from home and where no other supervision arrangements can be made.
  • Vulnerable children, including:
  • Children in out-of-home care.
  • Children deemed by Child Protection and/or Family Services to be at risk of harm.
  • Children identified by the school as vulnerable (including via referral from a family violence agency, homelessness or youth justice service or mental health or other health service)
  • Any child with a disability

It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time.

We thank you for your understanding, co-operation and support.
