Dear Parents and caregivers
Firstly, can I thank you all for your support during this incredibly challenging period. The Coronavirus pandemic has challenged us all in ways we couldn’t have imagined. We have all had to make a range of decisions that has impacted the way we live regarding work and home.
The following information is a guide to how Dianella Secondary College will operate during term 2 until further notice.
Over the past 2 weeks we have been busy contacting all families seeking information surrounding their ability to have students study on-line. Teachers have been busy uploading work packages and associated resources to connect. If there are changes to your on-line availability, please let the school know and a hard copy of work can be posted. Alternatively, if you no longer require hard copies, please let us know.
Hard Copy Work packages
Hard copy work packages will be sent out via mail to minimize face to face contact.
A list of students who require these work packages has been compiled and will be mailed to you. Each work package will have a combination of assignments and assessments with expected return dates included.
Returning completed work
All completed work can be dropped off at Administration between 8.30am and 3.15pm. Large tubs for individual year groups will be sitting in the foyer, you simply need to place the work in the appropriate year level container.
Please ensure that all completed work is clearly labeled with the name of the student, their class and year group. There is no need to hand the work to a teacher, all work will be passed to them.
What does term 2 look like?
Term 2 will be the same as the final week of term 1. As a school we recognize that there may be some students who have parents who are essential workers who need to send their child to school. This also applies to children who are considered vulnerable.
It is important that students access the remote learning program where possible in order to minimize direct contact with other students and staff. As a community we need to remain vigilant and committed in reducing the spread of Covid-19. Sending students to school because they want to be with their friends is not acceptable. Students who do attend school will be supervised only and will access their work on-line.
I would like to send you all my well wishes and positive thoughts as we enter term 2. I will continue to update you all as new information arises.
If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email the school. If you require technical support, Ryan Demarteau, our IT Technician is available to lend a hand.
