Covid-19 Update Letter from Reach2


12th March 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you for supporting the school and community in our response to this pandemic.

The school continues to implement a range of measures to mitigate the risk of spreading this virus, these include:

  • Pupils and staff wash hands on arrival to school.
  • Pupils and staff wash hands frequently throughout the day.
  • Pupils and staff have been briefed to cough and sneeze safely.
  • Visitors sanatise and wash hands on entry.
  • Visitors and new pupils are questioned about any underlying symptoms or recent travel.
  • Increased cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, handles, switches, rails, tablets, laptops, mobiles and toilets throughout the day.

From tomorrow, the school will be implementing the next stage of measures to delay the spread of this virus, these are:

  • All trips will be postponed or cancelled and pupils will not use public transport with the school.
  • The school will cease sporting events or festivals with large numbers of pupils. 
  • Staff will not be attending large meetings or training.
  • The school will continue to closely monitor pupils and staff with underlying conditions. 

The school is making preparations for a mandatory school closure in the future if necessary, these preparations include:

  • Preparing and updating our continuation of learning plan.
  • Preparing to support some of our most vulnerable families.

Actions you must take:

  • If you or your child have a fever (temperature above 37.5) or cough, please self-isolate for 7 days. 
  • If possible, grandparents or those most at risk from the virus should reduce visits to the school.
  • If your contact details have changed please update the office tomorrow.

Further updates will be sent through our Piota App, on the new Coronavirus page on the school website and via Twitter. Any school closure will also be communicated via text. 

Thank you.

Mr D Prendergast

Head of School
