Learning from Home

 

MAINTAINING STAFF – STUDENT CONTACT

Our staff are committed to maintaining contact with all students who will be undertaking learning from home during term 2. We appreciate the value of the positive relationships our staff have with their students and recognize the importance of maintaining these to ensure our students continue with their learning program while at home.

This contact may be via:

  1. Class Dojo
  2. Seesaw
  3. Virtual meetings in Microsoft Teams
  4. Phone calls
  5. Home visits

Please Note:

Staff will only make contact with students via the above. Families will have access to all learning tasks made available to students via online apps.

Phone calls will be made directly to parents /carers and teachers will seek permission from parents/ carers before speaking with students.

Two staff members will attend all home visits.
