Message on Class Dojo regarding contacting parents about positive COVID cases - 30/11/21
Good morning everyone,
As you know, we are always very careful to follow the guidelines set down by the government around COVID and all its associated protocols. The guidelines state that schools are not required to inform parents or carers if a child in the school tests positive for COVID as they do not count as a close contact. The government only counts people who live in the same household as a close contact.
However, we have had a request that we inform you if there is a case in a class, and so, bearing in mind the new variant, and how close we are to Christmas, we will be doing this from now on.
If we receive communication from a parent that their child has tested positive for COVID on a PCR, then we will send a message through Dojo to that class.
Please do not let this cause you undue anxiety, we have have had a number of cases over the past 20 months, and I am sure that we will continue to do so.
Currently, we have cases in Classes 3, 6, 8 and 9.
I hope that this will help those of you who are feeling anxious about this.
