Lockdown 6 - Parent Communication

Return to Remote Learning 6.0


Thursday 5th August, 2021

Dear Footscray West Primary School Community,

The Premier has just announced a seven-day lockdown due to the most recent outbreak of COVID19 in the community.

The lockdown will commence from 8:00pm tonight and is proposed to end at 11.59 pm Thursday 12th August.  We will have an immediate return to Stage 4 restrictions.

Tomorrow, Friday, 6th August, school will be closed for onsite learning.

Plans for Friday 6th August

Tomorrow at 9:00am (for Years 3-6) and 9:15am (for Years Prep-2), your child’s class teacher will meet with the grade on Webex. Please refer to your child’s Google Classroom for the link.

Following this session, a ‘Fun Friday’ post will be uploaded, with a range of activities for your child to participate in.

Plans for Next Week

From Monday 9th August, the daily learning program will be posted in each grades’ Google Classroom. This process will continue for the period of remote learning.

Onsite Supervision

Only children whose parents or carers meet the recognised eligibility criteria will be able to attend onsite next week. This includes:

  • Students of authorised essential workers, only during the times when both carers are not able to work from home and no other supervision arrangements can be made.
  • Students deemed vulnerable (including students in Out of Home Care or supported by government agencies).

 If you meet the above categories, you will need to make contact via the following link prior to 1:00pm tomorrow (Friday, 6th August), so that your child’s attendance can be considered, and the school can arrange appropriate supervision.

Their Care Program

Their Care before and after school care program will only operate for families who meet the above criteria from Monday, 9th August. 

Parents and carers are required to make supervision arrangements for their children.  Please keep an eye out for further notifications via our app, ‘Updat-ed’, over the next few days.

Your sincerely,


Brendan Millar
