Katitjiny – Week 7 08.06.2020

Week 7 – beginning Monday, 8 June 2020

Phase 3 at Millen Primary School

From today, (Monday 8th June) parents and caregivers are permitted on the school site. Adults are still required to maintain a physical distance of 1.5 metres from each other and are required to follow the 2 square metre rule in enclosed spaces.

This presents some logistical issues, so we ask you to please follow these temporary procedures:

Kiss and Drop at the classroom door (Kindergarten to Year 2)
  • Much like the Kiss and Drive model we use in the car park, we ask you to please Kiss and Drop your child at the school gate, veranda, playground or classroom door. The classrooms will open at 8.20am and lessons will commence at 8.30am. Home-time will return to the usual time of 2.45pm.
  • Please avoid gathering in groups along the veranda, enclosed corridor, office and outside classrooms.
  • Please continue to access the school from the Ramsden Street or Pinedale Street entrances rather than through the office. (If you have business in the office, or students are late, you are welcome to enter.)
Parent-teacher communication
  • Messages can be relayed to the teacher via email using Connect or by telephoning the office at any time on 9264 7600.
  • Face-to-face meetings with your child’s teacher can be scheduled by telephoning the office or by emailing the teacher.
Sick children

We have had a significant number of children coming to school with colds. If your child is unwell please keep them at home until they have fully recovered.

Senior playground

This officially re-opens today! (Monday 8th June)

School Photos

These are scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. Please remember to send your child to school in their Millen uniform (teal green shirt, not faction shirt) on these days. Year 6 students should wear their Leavers shirt.

Sushi Day

Sushi Day is this Friday. Remember to place your order by Wednesday!  Refer to Connect notice from 04.06.2020 for full details, including order form.
