Weekly Update 4.2.21

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Please find weekly updates and reminders below:

Staff asymptomatic testing

As confirmed last week, following the launch of rapid asymptomatic coronavirus (COVID-19) testing in schools, staff working onsite at High Down Schools are being offered the opportunity to take part in regular asymptomatic testing which will take place twice a week. If a test result comes back positive, we will need to close a bubble down and those children and staff will need to isolate and move to remote learning. We will inform you as soon as possible in the case of a positive case. We will then continue to follow our school and Government protocols during this time. 

Reminders for parents and carers of children who are coming onto school site

  • Please ensure that you are maintaining social distancing at all times when on school site. There have been a number of occasions where adults and children are not maintaining at least a 2m distance at the beginning and end of the school day. 
  • Please ensure School lunches are ordered on Aspens by 5:00pm the day before.  The new allergens matrix is now attached along with the current weekly menu. 

Reminders for parents and carers of children who are working remotely

  • On Friday 12th February (1.30-3pm), we will be placing some more exercise books in the staff car park for any families who need them. As before, please maintain social distancing on collection. 
  • If your child is poorly or unable to log online for the day please e-mail Lisa on Office@highdownschools.org confirming your child’s name and allocated Teacher.

Have a good rest of the week and we hope you all have a great weekend.

Kind regards

School Office
