Dear Footscray West Community,
The Premier has just announced a five-day lockdown due to the recent outbreak of COVID19.
This will commence from 11.59 pm tonight ending at 11.59 pm on Wednesday. We now return to Stage 4 restrictions.
This means Footscray West PS will close, except for students of essential workers or vulnerable students.
Let’s hope this short-term pain gets things under control quickly. Given the nature of the lockdown period we are asking parents to make supervision arrangements for their children wherever possible. If this is not possible for you due to being an essential worker, you will need to make contact, with Brendan via the following link prior to 11.30 am on Sunday, so that your child’s attendance can be considered and the school can arrange appropriate supervision.
As yet there has been no advice from the DET as to whether schools will need to provided remote instructions for the period of closure. We will keep you informed on this matter.
Please keep an eye out for further notifications via our app - ‘Updat-ed’ over the next few days.
