I hope you are well. At this point I wanted to check in with you all and just let you know we are on track with a plan for coming back to school. The school calendar is available on the website. We will start back on Monday 31 August.
We are hoping that busses will run as usual. I will be providing the escorts with a thermometer to take temperatures of pupils before boarding the bus - anyone with an elevated temperature will not be allowed to come to school.
There is an element of higher risk of contracting COVID 19 associated with using the bus as there is no requirement for pupils to wear masks and it is my understanding that there may be pupils from other schools also using the bus - if you would like to refrain from using the bus for a while - please make contact with me immediately. firstname.lastname@example.org
All the staff will be wearing a clear visor and a mask at most times. Please prepare your child for this as best you can.
There will be some timetable changes. and we don't yet know about swimming plans. Teachers will communicate these with you
Please keep an eye on the website for updates.
Drop-off and pick-up times:
Together, we will make this work as safely and smoothly as possible for our children. We are still working through the logistics and practicalities.
Additional support materials to help prepare children for their return to school will be shared over the next few weeks.
Anyone who becomes unwell during the day will need to go home with a parent - not on the bus.
