Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School 165th Annual General Meeting Monday 28th March 2022 6pm Music Room Parents and community members are invited to attend the 165th Annual General Meeting of Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School.

Update 27th January

Dear Parent/Caregivers,

An update for our families.

As you are aware, Monday (31st January) and Tuesday (1st February) have been deemed planning days for staff.

Parents who are required to attend work and do not have anyone who can supervise their children can choose to send their child/ren to school for supervision. There will be no learning programme on these days and students will be supervised by teachers and SSO’s. 

I ask that parents please email at dl.0221.info@schools.sa.edu.au if the intention is to send your child/ren on Monday and Tuesday so that we can provide adequate supervision. Thank you to families who have already let us know. For those attending, please ensure that a packed recess and lunch are provided. It is strongly recommended that children wear masks whilst inside the buildings (we ask where possible that children bring their own, however we do have a supply on site).

Please report to the Front Office on arrival.

On Wednesday (2nd February) we welcome our Reception and Year 1 students to school. Staff will be in the yard to assist students to their classrooms. To meet COVID-19 protocols, parents may enter the yard (meeting social distancing requirements) but refrain from entering the buildings.

Year 2- 6 Students – Wednesday 2nd Feb – Friday 11th Feb

Students in Year 2 -6 will be provided with a home learning programme.  Teachers are planning home learning packages for all students in Year 2-6. Home learning can be difficult for all and I ask that families try to maintain communication with the classroom teacher.

Teachers will be regularly communicating via SeeSaw, email and regular Webex meetings.

Information will be sent home via SeeSaw and packs will be available for pick up on Tuesday 1st February between 9-11am and 1:30pm – 3pm from under the veranda of building 2 (near the canteen).

Parents who are required to attend work and do not have anyone who can supervise their children can choose to send their child to school for online learning supervision and activities.

If you or your family require support to access remote learning, ie laptop, please contact the Front Office.

Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance if required.

It is very important during these covid times to keep our community safe. If your child is unwell, is a household/close contact from other exposures or symptomatic, they must not be at school. This applies to all children.  If they are unwell at school, parents will be contacted to come and collect their child from school. 

 

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing our new and returning students as soon as possible.

Department Classification

Dear parent/carer(s),

SA Health and the Department for Education has provided guidance on how to manage cases of COVID-19 in schools, preschools and early childhood education and care (ECEC) centres.

There will be new contract tracing and close contact arrangements in education from 31 January 2022. 

The new arrangements recognise the importance of providing quality education and care for our students while minimising the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Schools, preschools and ECEC centres will remain open if there is a case of COVID-19 under the new arrangements.

It’s very important that you notify us immediately if your child tests positive to COVID-19.

If a student or teacher in your child’s class or room tests positive for COVID-19, they will be deemed a classroom contact and the following will occur:

  • We will notify all parents in that class/room of the positive case
  • All students and children without symptoms can continue attending school. No rapid antigen testing will be required.
  • If your child develops any symptoms (even mild) please keep them home from school, and get a COVID-19 test.

Any student who has worked 1:1 with a COVID positive staff member (more than 15mins, indoors, in close proximity and where face masks are not able to be worn) will be asked to complete 7 days of rapid antigen testing (‘test to stay’) each morning before attending school. We will provide you with the testing kits at no charge. Students that test positive must not attend school.

Alternatively, if you don’t want your child to complete the 7-day testing, they can quarantine for 7 days. The Department for Education is developing online learning resources for students in years reception to 10 that can be completed during quarantine.

The Chief Public Health Officer (CPHO) has recommended that classroom contacts should avoid the following between days 1 to 7 of exposure:

  • attendance at OSHC where possible
  • attending extra-curricular-based activities for 7 days (such as camps, excursions, interschool sport, combined choir etc – noting most of these activities have been temporarily suspended until week 4).

The CPHO advises classroom contacts should do the following to minimise risk to others, when outside of the school between days 1 to 14 of exposure:

  • avoid high risk settings or COVID Management Plan events
  • wear a surgical mask around others (where age appropriate) and outside your home
  • avoid contact with vulnerable people outside of your workplace or family, where possible
  • avoid non-essential activities where possible (eg where there are lots people, inside, in close contact)
  • avoid shared spaces and maintain physical distance.

 

Our staff will also undergo 7 days of rapid antigen testing (test to stay) in the event that they are in a classroom with a student or colleague who tests positive.

It’s vitally important that you please:

  • keep your child/ren home if they are:
    • unwell
    • experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
    • any other member of the household has COVID-19
    • they are a close contact for a person who has COVID-19 and are required to quarantine
  • notify us asap if your child/ren tests positive for COVID-19
  • let your child (if in years 3 to 6) know that they will be required to wear a face mask while indoors at school. We will have supplies (including child sizes) for them to wear if they don’t already have one.

These new settings will be in place until the end of week 4 of term 1. However, with the rapidly changing nature of the pandemic, this may be reviewed or changed if and when needed. As always, we must remain flexible and responsive.

I understand you may have a lot of questions about this information. We’ll continue to provide you information as soon as we have it.

Thank you for your understanding and support in implementing these temporary measures as we continue to adjust to this rapidly changing pandemic.

Kind Regards, 

Bob Bowden
Principal

2022 Update

Dear Families,

We hope you are keeping well during these uncertain times. We appreciate your patience as we work through what the next few weeks will look like for our staff and students.

We are excited to welcome Alana Marchioretti into Room 5 teaching our Year 3 students Monday to Wednesday, alongside Cameron Staker Thursday and Friday. We also welcome Olivia Metcalfe into Room 18 with our Year 4/5s. We know both teachers are very excited to meet their classes.

Information regarding remote learning for our Year 2-6 students will be distributed via Seesaw and Szapp later in the week so please keep an eye out for these notifications.

As we welcome Reception and Year 1 students back on site from Wednesday 2nd of February there will be canteen access for recess and lunch. The canteen will be open Monday to Friday in 2022, however there will be some changes to the ordering process. Due to Covid-19 parents cannot order via the canteen directly. Students are to order via brown bags or a piece of paper and a snap lock bag with cash. These are to be placed in the classroom order box every morning.

Please see the attached canteen price list for this year.
