Term 3 Guide for parents and carers

30 Jun 2020

Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Education and Training

The Department of Education has today launched a guide for parents and carers, which provides easy to understand information about what to expect when school returns for Term 3.

It includes important information about cleaning and hygiene in schools and what activities and programs can resume in Term 3 subject to adhering to health guidelines.

This includes schools assemblies, inter-school student events and competitions, excursions, VET and work placements and parent/teacher interviews.

While all adults must maintain physical distance from each other at all times (1.5 metres), from Term 3 parents and carers will again be able to drop off and pick up students on school grounds.

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.

Schools continue to remain safe, and all students should now be learning at school unless they have medical advice for a medical condition or are unwell.

The Tasmanian Government is extremely proud of the way Tasmanian schools, students and their families have responded to the challenges of COVID-19.

The Guide can be found on the Department of Education website.
