As you know, until at least the 22 May, Queensland schools are engaged in Learning at Home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have had a number of questions from parents about this and hope that this flowchart is helpful in assisting you to determine whether or not your children should come to school during this time.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We will be learning at home for the first 5 weeks of Term 2 (20th
April to at least 22nd
May) in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Today we will be launching our Learning@Home portal which will give students access to weekly curriculum plans and resources, classroom music, library, PE and student support services.
To access our Learning@Home portal, all students require is their school MIS ID and password (which is their normal school login) which was sent home by your class teacher. If you still do not have access to your child’s login details, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Weekly plans are comprised of lots of different resources including word documents, PDFs, PowerPoints, and interactive videos and links. Activities can be completed by printing, downloading (see instructions below) or be completed in their notebooks at home.
We understand that some families may not have access to IT resources and as you are aware we have gathered information from all of our families regarding availability of devices in your homes. Not all learning will be online, however, for those families where we have identified a need, we will discuss the possibility of loaning a school device to your child during the next few weeks. Paper copies of resources will also be available from Tuesday 21 April where necessary, please contact your class teacher if you require these.
We thank you for your continued support throughout this challenging time and look forward to working with you to support your children’s learning in Term 2.
