Letter to Foundation parents 11/12/21
We have just found out that we have our first case of the Omicron variant of the COVID 19 virus. It is unfortunately in the foundation stage. Because of how the unit operates and that the children and staff all mix we are advising you that your child must self-isolate for 10 days, their last day of isolation is the Sunday 19th of December.
Work will be provided via seesaw and your teacher/TA will be in touch on Monday to make sure you can access the work and that you are all ok.
If you are free school meals, we will be providing vouchers for your child, but they may not arrive until after the holidays, if you would prefer a packed lunch then please let us know and we can arrange it.
If you have siblings in the other parts of school, you may have problems getting them to school if your little one cannot leave. We can authorise this absence this week but due to many different things happening around school this week work for them will probably be a little sparse.
If your child has been absent since Thursday 9th December, they will not have been in contact and therefore will not need to isolate but the unit will still be closed to them as we have no staff (they are all isolating too).
If the guidance changes during the self-isolation period, as the government has said that it may change to daily testing before Christmas, we will let you know.
Please get in touch if you need anything at all, we are there to support you. Message us via Facebook messenger, email over the weekend or ring us on Monday.
Thank you for your support,
