What Term 3 will look like in our schools

We are extremely proud of the Tasmanian community response to COVID-19.  For schools and families, this has been a time of challenge and change.  It has been fantastic seeing schools return to their bustling hives of activity and learning. 

We value the role parents and carers play in our schools and as a critical part of their child’s education, and it is important that we maintain and continue strong relationships with families and schools.  While all adults must maintain physical distance from each other at all times (1.5 metres), from Term 3 parents and carers will again able to drop off and pick up students on school grounds, however this must be at the classroom door only. 

Schools continue to remain safe, and all students should now be learning at school unless they have medical advice for a medical condition.  It is also very important to keep your child at home if they are unwell at all.

With updated health advice and changes to restrictions, schools are currently able to undertake a number of school-based activities with more activities restarting from Term 3. 

In light of these changes, we have released a Learning at School Guide for Parents and Carers.  The guide provides easy to understand information about what to expect when schools return next term.  It includes important information about cleaning in schools and what activities and programs can resume in Term 3.
