Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to confirm the arrangements for the closure of school for February half term. The last day of remote learning and onsite provision for priority students will be Thursday 11 February, as Friday 12 February is staff INSET. Remote learning and priority student provision will begin again on Monday 22 February.
Despite the closure, if a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school, the school is asked to assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in school. Therefore, if your child tests positive for coronavirus from Thursday 11 February up to and including Monday 15 February, please inform the school, stating the following information:
- Your child’s name and form group.
- The date when your child first developed COVID-19 Symptoms.
- The date of the positive COVID-19 test.
- A phone number that you can be easily reached on.
We request that any information about positive COVID-19 tests is sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address will be monitored in the 6 day window mentioned above between 10.00am and 2.00pm.
We thank you for your ongoing support in these challenging times as we have appreciated your responsiveness in letting us know of any COVID-19 related issues and cases since our full return to school.
