Government schools and preschools have been letting families know today whether the planned AEU strike action will mean they have to close on Thursday morning.
The Department for Education is in the process of collating state-wide information. To date, approximately half of the sites have responded with confirmation that 59% will open as normal, 19% will open with a modified learning program and 22% will close until 12:15pm.
Education Directors have been working with principals and preschools directors today to support sites to stay open wherever possible.
If families have any questions about the status of their child’s school or preschool they are advised to contact the site directly.
Schools in country areas have provided advice to families on the status of bus services on Thursday morning.
