COVID 19 – School Status Update

The Victorian Government has made some significant announcements about the introduction of new measures for schools across metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

These include a change to arrangements for schools at the start of Term 3.

As our school is in an affected area, the government’s new measures will apply to St John the Apostle Catholic School.

There will be five student-free days from Monday 13 to Friday 17 July for all of our students. Currently, classes are expected to resume for these students on Monday 20 July 2020.

I know that this may mean uncertainty and another period of dislocation for you and your family. The school is doing everything it can to mitigate the impact of these changes on our community, and to minimise the impact of this disruption on your child’s learning journey.

If there are any changes to the arrangements for the start of Term 3, we will update you using the school website and new school app. Please download the app using the links below to stay informed. Ensure you have notifications switched on in your mobile phone settings for this app so you are notified of all messages to parents.
