An Albury school has asked some students to stay home for three days because of teacher shortages caused by Victoria's lockdown.
Albury High School told parents via email and social media the school would be open for students in years 7, 11 and 12 only on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, with the remaining year levels asked to work independently at home if possible.
"At least 15 of our staff live in Victoria and this impacts on our operational capacity significantly," principal Darryl Ward wrote to parents on Saturday.
"There will be limited supervision for students in years 8 to 10 if you are not able to keep your child at home.
"We appreciate your support and understanding during a challenging time for our local community."
Because of the short notice, the school isn't able to offer work packages to students learning from home, who are encouraged to read, keep physically active and complete current activities, projects and assignments.

Lavington's Murray High School did not expect timetable disruptions as a result of teacher absence at this stage.
"However, it would be sensible to recognise that, depending on staff availability, there may be some disruption," principal Norman Meader posted on the school's Facebook page.
"That said, school is definitely the right place for all students to be on Monday."
James Fallon High School, North Albury, noted border schools would continue to operate although some staff and students would be unable to attend owing to the Victorian lockdown.
