Work packs prepared for five weeks

Ettalong Public School has work packs for the first five weeks of Term 2 available for collection.

Starting on Monday, May 11, the school will be providing one day per week on-campus tuition for students, but students are required to take their work packs with them to school.

"Students will need to bring their Learning from Home Work Pack on their designated school day and they will take them home again at the end of their day, to be used on their Learning from Home days," said principal Ms Lyn Balfour.

The school has added numerous lessons and activities to their Google classrooms, where tuition will continue, she said.

Year 6 work packs were available at the Year Six classrooms.

Years 3-5 and Support classes work packs were available from the school hall where they were organised to maintain social distancing.

Kindergarten to Year 2 work packs were available under the new Kindergarten-Year Two covered area.

The school has organised separate areas to drop off K-2 children and to drop off children in Years 3-6.

"We ask parents of K-2 children to use the designated Kiss and Drop zone in Uligandi St," Ms Balfour said.

"We will open the basketball court gate for parents to drive through the laneway from Uligandi St to Karingi St - in one direction to keep our children safe, to drop children in Years 3-6.

"With such a large playground and two street frontages, there is no reason why social distancing for parents cannot be managed," she said.

The Karingi St pedestrian gate and the Karingi St bus gate will be open for students who walk to school or catch the bus.

At 8:55am, Years K-2 will meet in their grade groups underneath the new covered area and Years 3-6 will meet beneath the Cola in four seperate sections.

Before and After School Care will continue to be run by the YMCA.
