COVID LFO Testing: Update 11-03-21

Dears Parents and Carers,

Over the past week, staff at AMSI have conducted nearly 500 lateral flow tests. We are thankful for your cooperation in this process so far. So that we can administer 2nd and 3rd COVID tests within the allotted time frame of the Government, we will need to stagger students’ start times on the days we are testing their year group.

In the coming days you will receive a text message which indicates the time that your child should attend school on their test days. We ask that your child does not attend school before their allotted time for a test on that particular dayIf  you did not consent to the testing, you can send your child into school at the normal time – (8.15-8.30 for KS3, 9.10-9.25 for KS4).

On days the students are being tested, we ask that they do not arrive until 5 minutes before their allotted test time, and they should enter through the front student entrance. The later start time will not negatively impact upon your child’s attendance, and we will ask teachers to provide missed work via google classroom.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting us.
