Dear parents, carers and students,


As you know I have always said I will immediately let you know if we have a confirmed case of Covid19 at our College. Please see my letter below.

Our school has been advised of a reported case of 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.

As a precautionary measure, The Grange P -12 College will be closed for 24 hours initially, or until we receive advice it can re-open. The school will be closed to all students, staff and members of the community.

All students are asked to stay at home until further advice is provided.

Remote learning will continue, all Yr. 12 students will need to engage with their subject teachers who will continue to deliver both VCE and VCAL programs remotely. All Prep to Year 10 classes will continue online.

We will provide further information following confirmation of advice from DHHS.
