Proudly serving our children since 1877 21 December 2011. Dear Parents, This information is sent to you in preparation for the 2012 school year, together with our updated 2012 phone trees, so that you are aware of arrangements in place and new school procedures for the bushfire season . Please note that the following information was sent to me by the Department to pass onto you, with relevant editing for our school context. The way schools in Victoria respond to bushfires has been revised. New fire danger ratings and warnings have been introduced in Victoria to provide clear direction on the safest options for preserving life. Schools – and children’s services – identified as being at highest bushfire risk will be closed on days declared by fire authorities to be Code Red. Our school has been identified as a school at highest bushfire risk. Where possible, we will provide parents with up to three days notice of a planned closure. We will contact you directly by letter and/or phone tree with advice on planned closures. To save confusion, once a school closure has been communicated to you, it will not be reversed.
