Returning to the classroom


11 May 2020

All ACT public schools moved to remote learning at the start of term 2 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thanks to the great work of the community to restrict the transmission of COVID19, ACT public school students and teachers can start attending school from Monday 18 May.

The return to face to face learning will be carefully managed and staged over three weeks to ensure our students, teachers and staff are safe and our schools are fully prepared to have the appropriate measures in place, based on advice from the ACT Chief Health Officer PDF File (381kb).

The three stage return of face to face learning is:

Registrations for Safe and Supervised Sites are now closed and they will cease operation on Friday 15 May. From Monday 18 May, all students who were registered for Safe and Supervised Sites will be able to attend their usual school, irrespective of their year level, where they will be supervised to engage in remote learning with their usual teachers and classes until their respective year level returns to face-to-face education.

Students and teachers with chronic health conditions or compromised immune systems will be allowed to remain studying/working from home.

We want to reassure families, students and staff that we understand the need to remain vigilant about limiting the spread of COVID-19. We will be taking extra steps to protect our students, families and staff for as long as this pandemic lasts.
