School Response to COVID-19 27/03/2020

Dear Parents/Caregivers

Yesterday, the Government made an announcement that affects all public schools in Western Australia. 

It was advised that schools will remain open until the end of term (Thursday 9th April), however parents are strongly encouraged to keep their children at home if they have the capacity to do so due to work commitments and the ability for your child to access online resources.

We recognise that there will still be families who need to send their children to school during this period.  These families may include:

  • Children of parents and carers who need their children to attend school to maintain employment.
  • Children who live in families with aged relatives.
  • Children where it is safer for them to be at school.

What this means for East Beechboro Primary School is:

  • From Monday, 30th March to Friday 3rd April, all students who attend school will be taught as normal.
  • The following week (6th – 9th April), staff will prepare teaching programs for Term 2.
  • During this time (6th to 9th April), students who attend school will be supervised only.   Please note that there will be no formalised teaching during this time.  

Parents who are considering keeping their child at home are asked to encourage their child to continue their learning at home.  We are recommending that students:

  • Continue with their Mathletics and Reading Eggs programs
  • Continue reading a variety of texts
  • Continue writing in a variety of formats (creative, journal writing etc)
  • Access additional resources compiled by the Education Department (www.education.wa.edu.au/learning-at-home) or via our school website (search under the ‘School’ tab, find the Coronavirus heading and the link to the resources sits below this heading).

Parents are advised that students at East Beechboro who are in good health are most welcome to attend school until the end of term. 

This is a constantly changing environment and we will continue to inform parents of changes that may affect our school.  Parents are assured that school-aged children will continue to receive an education in Western Australia.  It will however be different.  A longer-term education model for Term 2 and beyond is currently being investigated.  As soon as this information is available, parents will be notified.  Please ensure that you keep up to date with all notifications via notes home, the school app and the school website. 

I would like to thank our school community for their support of our school. 

Sincerely

Shayne Harris

Principal

Canteen Orders
24/03/2020
14:35

Dear Parents/Caregivers

In order to minimise the number of people at the canteen and to minimise the need to handle cash, the canteen will not be open for over the counter orders.

Orders for lunch, recess and treats (including icy poles) can be placed on QuickCliq.  Alternatively, please fill out orders on lunch bags.  These can be placed, with payment, in the lunch crates in classrooms.  

Lunch orders will still be delivered to classrooms as normal.  Orders for recess and after lunch treats for students in Years 1 to 6 will still need to be collected by students from the canteen. By placing orders at the start of the day via the above methods, will significantly reduce the amount of time that students will be waiting at the canteen.

Given the current environment, we hope that you understand that these measures are taken to minimise risks to the school community as a whole.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Update On Additional School Measures
23/03/2020
14:40

Dear Parents, 

Notes have been sent home with students in regards to additional measures the school will be implementing to reduce risks of virus transmission.

Parents are advised, that effective immediately:

  1. Students who arrive at school prior to 8.30am are required to meet in the large undercover area to allow for additional space and the opportunity to socially distance.
  2. The distance between classes when lining up at the end of recess and lunch will be expanded as will the space between students in the line.
  3. Parents who drop students off at classes will only be permitted to remain in the classroom for a maximum of 5 minutes.
  4. All students are required to bring a water bottle to school.  Students will not be permitted to drink directly from drink fountains.  They will only be permitted to refill bottles from them.  Students who do not have a drink bottle will be supplied one.
  5. At the end of the day, once again we would ask you to pick up your child from outside the classroom or outside the gate if appropriate and leave the schools grounds promptly. There will be no use of the school playgrounds during this time.
  6. Cupcakes or other open food items should not be shared as part of birthday celebrations.  If you would like to bring food items to share for this purpose, please provide individual pre-packaged items. 

Thank you for your assistance.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
16/03/2020

Dear Parents and Caregivers

We are certainly in a space of uncertain and unprecedented times. It is without doubt that like myself, your conversations over the weekend with friends and family have been dominated by COVID-19. What does it mean for us as individuals, our families, the community, society and school? In order to keep our community as well as possible, it is important that we work together with this aim.

Following directives from the Director General this morning;

  • The school remains open with “Business as Usual” until further notice.
  • If you or your family return from any overseas destination from midnight last night you are to self-isolate for 14 days. Please inform the school.
  • If you or a family member come in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 please self-isolate and inform the school.
  • ALL large school events will be cancelled until further notice. This includes assemblies, interschool carnivals, ANZAC service, etc.
  • Lunch and recess eating will continue as normal as we separate students into different areas for play and eating.
  • Staff will minimise discussions about the virus to assist with keeping children calm.
  • Classroom staff will assist cleaning staff to ensure learning environments are thoroughly cleaned with desks, doors etc all cleaned thoroughly daily.
  • Increased supplies of soap will continue to be provided throughout the school with vigilance in monitoring hand washing practices.

To contain the spread of germs and virus, if you or your child demonstrate any symptoms of being unwell please stay at home and seek appropriate medical advice.

We are all working and living within “unknown territory”, however, we must all work together to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of all those around us including our families and ourselves.

It is essential that we remain calm in this environment. Parents are assured that they will be kept informed of Department of Education directives that affect our school.

Kindest regards

Shayne Harris - Principal

Coronavirus Update
13/03/2020
12:15

The Department of Education is working closely with the Health Department in regards to Coronavirus (COVID-19).  While the Department of Health advises that the risk of transmission of the virus remains low, they are monitoring the situation and the Department of Education are acting on their advice to take any necessary precautions that can be put in place to slow its transmission.

With the goal of reducing the spread of viruses at East Beechboro Primary School and in the community we are encouraging community members to practise rigorous hygiene. The school has implemented additional hygiene practices, including extra anti-bacterial sanitisers in classrooms, explicit instruction on handwashing and posters in toilets outlining effective handwashing techniques.

Good Hygiene Practices

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with anyone if you, or they, have a cold or flu-like symptoms. (Maintain a distance of at least 1 metre).
  • Stay home when you are sick and do not return to school until you have been fever-free without the use of Paracetamol/Ibuprofen for at least 24 hours.
  • Cover your coughs or sneezes with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the rubbish bin; if tissues are not available, cough or sneeze into the inside of your elbow. (Avoid use of handkerchiefs)

Further information is available on the Department of Health (WA) website at www.healthywa.wa.gov.au/coronavirus or by calling the healthdirect helpline on 1800 020 080.  

As information about Coronavirus is constantly being updated we will place updates on our school website. Should we receive any information that directly affects our school, parents will be notified.  It is therefore important that we have up-to-date contact details for your children. Please notify the office if your details have changed.

Coronavirus Update
05/02/2020
9:15

The Australian and Western Australian Governments have recently updated their advice for students travelling from or through Hong Kong. The latest advice is that students who have travelled from or through Hong Kong are no longer asked to stay at home and may return to school. Please keep updated with the latest novel coronavirus advice from the Department of Health.

Advice on returning to schools and early childhood centres (for children returning from China)

As an extra precaution to the advice for returned travellers above, parents of children are asked NOT to send their children to school or childcare if the child has returned from mainland China (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) within 14 days. Even if they don’t have symptoms, it is advised that they do not attend school or childcare. This is to ensure the safest possible environment for children. Children do not require a medical certificate or clearance but are asked to remain at home until 14 days after leaving mainland China. Please note this advice applies only to children attending school or childcare.

For general or travel related queries about coronavirus please go to the healthdirect website.

For more information, see the fact sheets below or call the Coronavirus Health Information Line, on 1800 020 080.

Travellers arriving from Hubei Province or mainland China

If you have recently visited Hubei Province, you must isolate yourself for 14 days after you left Hubei Province, other than for seeking medical assistance.

In addition to the above, if you arrived in Australia after 1 February 2020 after travelling to, or transiting through, mainland China (excluding Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) you must isolate yourself at home for 14 days after you left China, other than for seeking medical attention.

It is especially important these returned travellers take special care to avoid sensitive settings such as health care, aged care, child care and school facilities for 14 days following leaving mainland China.

Medical certificates are not required for people who need to self-isolate.

Parents will be notified should there be any further updates.

Novel Coronavirus
30/01/2020
14:55

The Department of Health advise that if a student has been in contact with someone who has contracted the virus, they should seek medical advice and stay away from school until they are clear of symptoms for 14 days.

As an extra precaution, if a student has travelled to or through China or Hong Kong in the past two weeks, parents are asked to keep them away from school for a period of 14 days from the date they returned to Perth.

This is a precaution as the incubation period for this virus can be up to 14 days. After that time, and no symptoms, the student may attend school.

Parents who have concerns about the risks to their children are asked to visit the Department of Health website (ww2.health.wa.gov.au/coronavirus).  A fact sheet is available on this site and is attached to this app message.
