These groups include:

  • Grades 6, 7 and 8;
  • Split class 4/5 and;
  • Henderson Early Learning Child Care Centre’s before-and-after school programs.

The letter goes on to say that remote learning arrangements for the aforementioned groups will continue for 14 days and that this length of time may be shortened or lengthened as required.
