The Government has confirmed schools will remain closed except for Essential Workers and Vulnerable children from APRIL 20th to MAY 22nd 2020. Below I have provided the Governments definition of 'Essential Workers and Vulnerable children' to support your decision making on eligibility of attendance at school. The Government has released that 'all students who are able to be supervised at home and learn from home are to stay home'. From the start of Term 2 until 22 May 2020 inclusive, all students will be learning from home, except for students in the following categories:
*Children of essential workers on days when not able to be supervised at home and no other arrangements can be made. Essential worker means any worker who must continue to attend their workplace for essential business during this time.
*Vulnerable children include children identified by schools or who - are currently receiving services from Child Safety, including those who are subject to a child protection order or are subject to a youth justice order.
*Children in designated Indigenous communities.
Where the student is learning at home, the parent or carer is responsible for the student's safety and wellbeing at home or elsewhere.
