Please remember that if you need to report a positive case, between Friday 28th May and Wednesday 2nd June you must contact school via our firstname.lastname@example.org email address. You should leave your child’s full name and class, the date they were last in school, the date they became symptomatic and the date they took the test. Despite it being the holidays, this email address will be checked daily at 10am from Friday 28th May to Wednesday 2nd June.
If your child is identified as a contact of a positive case during this six-day period, you will be advised by text and email of the isolation period, this may mean that your holiday plans are affected as your child would need to self-isolate. Please note, you will not be contacted by phone. We recognise that this is not the news that anyone wants to hear but it is vital that we act on any cases that occur in our community so we stop any further spread of the virus.
Our aim, once we have checked the enquiries@ email address at 10am each morning, is to send the email and text by 11am on the same day.
After this period, from 10am on Wednesday 2nd June, school should not be contacted; parents and carers should instead follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS test and trace. This will remain in place until we return to school on Monday 7th June.
Fingers crossed that we don’t have to contact any of you and that we can all have a restful holiday!
