Over the last 10 days we have had a number of confirmed positive Covid cases, nearly all in Year 12.
Can parents/carers help by doing the following:
- Not sending their child into school if they are feeling unwell. Please note, from our experience, the symptoms of Covid don’t necessarily limit themselves to a high temperature, new and continuous cough or loss of change/smell. If you have any doubt or your child is feeling generally unwell please err on the side of caution and take them for a test.
- If your child is identified as a close contact ensure they self-isolate at home until the date specified.
- Please ensure your child sticks to the National Road Map rules in terms of social contact/gatherings/car sharing etc.
We have been in touch with Public Health Newcastle and continue to act on their advice. Many thanks for all your support in what continues to be a disrupted time in schools.
