With so much information and misinformation circulating about COVID-19, I wanted to share with you what will happen if we were to have a case in our school community. We have been planning for this and are in a position to respond quickly.
As part of our planning we are compiling a spreadsheet register of students who have existing health conditions that may put them in a higher risk group in relation to exposure to COVID-19.
We have started this register using information we already have on our database eg students who are diabetic or immuno-suppressed but realise that we may not have the most up-to-date information for everyone.
Please could you notify us of this information in relation to your child by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that gives us the information around any health condition we should be aware of.
We know COVID-19 feels scary and of course people are concerned for the wellbeing of our children. Please be assured that with no case confirmed in our school, your children are safe here.
Good hygiene is a priority at our school, and we are reinforcing this regularly with all students and staff. We know that practicing good hygiene is still the best thing we can all do to prevent illness.
We are getting the most up to date advice and guidance so that we can confidently make informed decisions about the safety and wellbeing of our school community.
