On behalf of our school, I want to say a big thank you to all our students, parents and carers for your continued resilience and support during Term 3. I know remote and flexible learning has not always been easy, but through our collective efforts, our students have continued to make valuable progress in their learning. You can be confident that our school will support any student who has fallen behind to catch up.

Term 4 is important for every Victorian student, and our teachers will strive to deliver high-quality learning for all our students. Whether we’re teaching remotely or face-to-face, our focus for Term 4 is on making sure that every student is supported in their wellbeing, learning and transition needs.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has confirmed that a student at Hume Valley School has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19). This case has been reported to the Department of Education and Training (DET), and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is currently undertaking further investigation.

The school will now remain closed from 09/08/20 until advised otherwise.

While DHHS conducts further investigation, all students and staff must remain at home. This includes limiting movements to home-based activities and not attending public places.

DHHS will work with our school to identify and notify any staff and students identified as having been in close contact with the person who has tested positive to coronavirus (COVID-19), providing further advice as required.

At this stage staff and students do not need to seek testing unless they develop symptoms.
