Following advice from the Victorian Government on Tuesday 7 April, Melton Specialist School will be moving to remote and flexible learning from Term 2 beginning with a pupil-free day on Tuesday 14th April 2020
This is a step all Victorian government schools are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). This means that all students who can be at home must be at 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 supervision for those students who need to access this, including for students on days when they are not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. We will provide further information about this shortly.
The Department’s latest advice on coronavirus can be found at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/coronavirus
It is important that we work together and support each other during this challenging time. We will be in touch with staff and parents and carers shortly with further details of what remote and flexible learning will look like at our school.
In the meantime, you might find it useful to look at the Department’s Learning from Home website. It provides resources and guidance for teachers and parents and carers. https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/department/Pages/learningfromhome.aspx
