Returning for Term 2
HVGS require all students to return to regular, timetabled classes at the School campus from Monday 18 May 2020.
Parents with children who are vulnerable due to health conditions, can apply to HVGS if they wish to keep children home from School as a COVID-19 precaution. If parents have other exceptional circumstances that requires them to keep their children home due to COVID-19, HVGS will also consider these upon application.

From Monday 18 May, home learning will cease except for those students with approval of the School to continue learning from home, as outlined above.
Parents are still encouraged to keep children home from School if they are ill (as per regular School circumstances) or if they are showing signs of respiratory illness, or cold or flu-like symptoms including a temperature.

Co-curricular Activities Recommencing
HVGS Co-curricular activities are recommencing. Not all will commence on the same week. The information below outlines the current status of the activity. As you will see, some activities are listed as TBA (To Be Advised). We will update this information as more activities recommence and will alert parents via email and/or Valley Noticeboard.
Where practical, activities will be modified to minimise direct contact between participants.
Parents or external providers who coach/manage an activity are permitted on School campus for that sole purpose, and we ask that they exercise safe hygiene practices upon arrival and during their time at the School.
Parents/carers will not be permitted to attend these activities to be a spectator nor to drop off or pick up children. HVGS staff will ensure children are safely escorted to and from the pickup/drop off zone or class, before and after activities.
Activities will run at the previously scheduled day and time unless stated otherwise.
