It is really important that we continue to work together to keep all children, their families and our staff safe.
Even though schools are now fully open again we do know that COVID cases are still possible. We

PCR test result. If it is negative, school can resume for everyone. If it is positive, isolation should
continue for a total of 10 days.

If a child becomes ill in school, we will contact you immediately. They need to be collected as
