COVID-19 and school arrangements for Term 3 2020

Roadmap for Term 3

Today the ACT Education Directorate released a ‘roadmap’ for ACT public schools based on the ACT Government’s COVID-19 recovery plan.

This roadmap sets out a planned further easing of restrictions on school activities and parent/carer engagement, in line with broader easing of COVID-19 restrictions across the ACT.

From term 3, schools can welcome back our families for scheduled events such as parent teacher interviews and small assemblies with physical distancing and hygiene measures in place.

Onsite discos and celebrations can go ahead with no limitations on student numbers and parents/carers can attend.

Fundraising events will also be able to proceed but with limitations on numbers in line with broader community restrictions.

Parents and volunteers will be able to attend school sites with physical distancing and hygiene measures in place.

Overnight excursions will be allowed to go ahead at Birrigai and interstate excursions and camps can resume where they are a necessary part of a student’s education program. Schools must adhere to COVID-19 rules within the state they are travelling.

Interschool sport can continue within the ACT region with groups of under 100, including adults.

The roadmap, advice for schools from the Chief Health Officer and updated frequently asked questions are on our website.
