Latest COVID Cases
22nd November 2021
As we near the end of November, it is evident that COVID is making a resurgence within the school.
Last week, attendance in many of the classes was down on the previous week. This was as much to do with seasonal sickness as with COVID. Presently we have three teachers isolating after testing positive. As we only cover using Our Lady of Grace staff, ensuring that all the classes are covered is a challenge at the moment.
As a community to minimise the spread, please help us to maintain social distancing, hand hygiene, cleaning, wearing face coverings when appropriate and limiting social interactions.
As I have said previously, our Christmas Fayre and performances are very important to us as a community. Nevertheless, we have to be realistic as to our current circumstances and the risk posed by COVID. I will make the decision on Friday as to whether or not to cancel the live Christmas performances and move to a virtual platform. If I have to make that decision, it will be with a heavy heart, but my entire motivation is the health and wellbeing of the staff and children.
