Public Health Agency Letter RE COVID case
5th October 2020
A student in the school has tested positive for Covid-19 within the past few days. The school immediately reported the result to the Public Health Agency, and procedures were followed to identify close contacts within the school community. The parents of these close contacts were notified on Friday 2nd October of the need for their children to self-isolate until Tuesday 13th October, when they can return to school.
If you were not contacted on Friday 2nd October, your child has NOT been identified as a close contact. The Public Health Agency has issued the attached letter for those whose children are not close contacts. We would ask you to read this letter in full, and follow the guidance it contains. We would also seek your support in encouraging your child to ensure that they wear a face covering on school corridors and in other public areas of the school.
In this way we can all work together to minimise the risk that Covid-19 poses to our school community.
