Dear Parents and Carers,

We are looking forward to our students returning to school tomorrow. In light of the current COVID-19 restrictions, parents and carers will not be permitted on site until further notice.

Gates will open at 8:45 am for student access and at 3:10 pm for students to leave the school grounds.

Students can enter and exit the school grounds from any gate. As parents and carers are not permitted on site we ask that you let your child know where you will pick them up. Please ensure that when you drop off and collect your child from school that you are wearing a face mask and are physically distanced.

Thank you for your understanding at this time.

Dear Parents and Carers,

The Victorian Government has announced new arrangements for schools in Victoria from and including Friday 11 June.

 Based on advice from the Victorian Chief Health Officer, schools in metropolitan Melbourne will return to face-to-face learning and teaching for all students from and including Friday 11 June 2021.

Friday 11 June is a student free day at Newbury Primary School and students do not attend onsite. No onsite supervision is available and no Webex classes will operate.

From 11.59pm Thursday 10 June, consistent with advice for the broader community, school staff and secondary school students aged 12 or older, must wear a face mask at school, unless an exception applies: 

* in all indoor spaces 

* in all outdoor spaces when 1.5m physical distance cannot be maintained

* when travelling to and from school on public transport.

Visitors and parents must also observe this guidance.

Thank you for supporting your children and our school staff this past fortnight. We look forward to seeing our students back at school with their friends and teachers, with school opening at the standard time of 8:50am on Tuesday 15 June. 

The wellbeing of all our students is our priority and our school staff and teachers are here to support you and your family.  Information that might be of assistance to you in talking to your child about COVID-19 is available. If you are concerned about your wellbeing or that of your child, please contact the school so we can talk with you about how we can best assist. Other sources of support include: Parent Line 13 22 89 and Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800.

A reminder that if you, your child, or a family member develops symptoms of COVID-19, you should get tested at a COVID-19 testing facility and stay home.

Each family should regularly check the list of public exposure sites in Victoria (where a person with COVID-19 has attended), and if anyone in the family has attended a site at the times listed, follow the instructions given.

If you are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, please check out the website for information and bookings. Like getting tested if you have symptoms, getting vaccinated goes a long way to keeping our communities safe and schools open.

Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or contact the school if you have any concerns.
