COVID-19 protocols – Important info for Students Attending on Campus

 

In regards to COVID-19, Box Hill Institute continues to follow the directions of Victoria’s Chief Health Officer. All students attending on campus / on site are reminded that they must adhere to the COVID safe protocols in place and as advised/guided by your teacher or other Box Hill Institute staff.

 

This includes compliance with mask wearing, actively using hygiene caddies in your classroom, social distancing, adhering to density requirements as asked, and following hand hygiene guidance. If your classroom is unable to have open windows or doors, your teacher may consider using outside spaces and social distancing for your lesson to reduce risk.

 

As we move forward, the intention of the Victorian Government roadmap is to encourage all Victorians to get vaccinated to protect themselves and the community.
