He said he sent Jonas to school to figure out what was wrong, but the Year Eight student said the place was “empty”.
Premier Daniel Andrews has urged parents to keep their school-aged children home if they can, but said schools would be open for those parents who could not.
As hundreds of thousands of students across the state signed in through their screens, the glitches started surfacing.

“There will be some bumps today, there will be some challenges,” Mr Andrews said.
At Port Melbourne Primary School, just 22 students out of more than 700 got the go-ahead to attend in person.
Another 21 were in school at Elsternwick.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Scott Morrison continues to urge parents to send their kids to school in person.
But Mr Andrews insists he and Mr Morrison aren’t on different pages.
“There is no difference in our approach,” he said.
