Term 2 Phase 1 Students Returning to School

Good evening students, parents and guardians

Bass High School will be open this week for children of essential workers and vulnerable students. Year 12 Teachers have been inviting selected Year 12 classes into the school for lessons and their students are able to attend school for the duration of their class.

The following two weeks, Years 7 - 12 will be attending school for a minimum one day per week effective from the 11th of May. The school will continue to open for the children of essential workers and vulnerable students throughout this time.

The Term 2 phase 1 student attendance schedule will be as follows:

Monday 11th and 18th May - Year 7 From 9 - 2.30pm
Tuesday 12th and 19th May - Year 8 From 9 - 2.30pm
Wednesday 13th May and 20th May - Years 11 and 12 From 9 - 3pm
Thursday 14th May and 21st May - Years 9 and 10 From 9 - 3pm
Friday 15th May and 22nd May - Year 12 From 9 - 3pm

Online lessons will continue for all students during their non attendance days. On the day they attend, with the exception of Years 11 and 12, they will be completing the same work scheduled for students staying at home. 

Year 12 Teachers will be able to bring selected classes back for further lessons on Monday and Tuesday. Some Year 12 Teachers will be using period 0 lessons and in both instances their students will be advised by their Teachers of the arrangements.

Social distancing procedures will be used including 10 - 15 students per room with one Teacher, staggered finishing times of 10 minutes where two year groups attend school and enhanced cleaning of high traffic areas. The canteen will be open for a limited time from the 11th May, further details to come.

It has come to my attention that a few students have been arriving then leaving school premises before the 9am school starting time. Rolls are marked early in the morning and parents sending their children to school this week are urged to ring the school to check their children are attending. 

Thank you for your cooperation, understanding and assistance during this difficult time. We are attempting to manage the Term 2 student return to school in an orderly and safe manner being mindful of the HSC requirements of our Year 12 students and needs of all students.

Kind regards
