Letter to Families 5th March

S4-S6 Timetable Week Commencing 8th March

 

If you are attending school to complete practical work in the next few weeks, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to participate in COVID Lateral Flow testing at home. This will help to ensure your safety in school and of course, the safety of others. If you would like to participate, please take the following action-

 

  • Read the attached risk assessment on the safe use of lateral flow test kits at home.
  • Complete your consent form with your parent (either on paper or electronically). Please note that paper copies are available from the school office.
  • Pass your consent form to me in school or email gw11mullenjohn@glow.sch.uk .
  • I will then issue your testing kit along with instructions on how to use it safely. If you are sending your consent form electronically, please remember to collect your kit from my office the next time you are in school.
  • Record your results on the NHS website (details on how to do this are in the instruction booklet).

 

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this important information.

 Updated Risk Assessment

School Buses

As per earlier communications, school buses will be running at the usual times, Mon- Fri. There is currently one bus from each geographical area, Ashgill/Netherburn and Stonehouse. School transport provision will continue to be reviewed, to ensure compliance with the two metre distancing mitigation.

Please contact Mrs Patricia Boyd (DHT) should you have any enquiries.
