Junior - Weekly email - Friday 11th March

Dear Parents / Carers
 
We hope that everyone enjoyed the Year 4 visit to Woodrow. A huge thank you to all of the staff who supported this trip.
 
Covid cases in school
 
We are starting to see a build up of cases in school. If your child is unwell, we ask you to please keep an eye on your child's symptoms. If your child shows any Covid symptoms please can you test your child. Lateral Flow tests are still freely available - details here. We are trying to keep everyone in school safe and we appreciated your support.
 
A reminder of the current guidelines: Children and young people with COVID-19 should not attend their education setting while they are infectious. They should take an LFD test from 5 days after their symptoms started (or the day their test was taken if they did not have symptoms) followed by another one the next day. If both these tests results are negative, they should return to their educational setting if they normally attend one, as long as they feel well enough to do so and do not have a temperature. They should follow the guidance for their educational setting.
 
School meal ordering notes:
  • Meal orders must be placed 2 days in advance. 
  • To see what has been ordered once the ordering window has closed you can check your Statements for each month. On the screen that you order school meals from there is a button at the bottom right called Statements, If you click on this button you can see what has been ordered for a given date. Please check each weekend for the following weeks orders
  • If you have ordered a meal for a child who will be absent, for any reason, you can cancel this up to two days in advance. On the day cancellations can only be made by the office if they are informed by 9am on the day. If you have placed a meal order for the day your child is absent, please mention this on any absence messages sent to the office. If we are not informed on the day by 9am you may still be charged for the ordered meal. 
Absence from School - if your child is unwell and unable to attend school please can you inform the school office at the start of the day, either by email or by leaving a phone message.
