Dear Parents, Guardians and Carers,
Although we are on Level 4 lockdown, the school has been closed due to a COVID case but is now ready to reopen on Monday 17 August to those families requiring onsite supervision of remote learning. Just a reminder that the only children able to use the onsite remote learning are children of permitted workers and who have no one else to supervise the children.
The school has identified a number of vulnerable students according to the government guidelines and those families have been contacted. All other students are expected to access remote learning from home until further notice.
Permitted workers will be required to show their permit when signing their children in.
All visitors to St Andrew’s will be required to complete a declaration on each visit acknowledging they are not unwell, have not had contact with any known cases and have not been for testing and still awaiting results. Anyone answering yes to any of the questions will not be granted entry to the school site.
Face masks are mandatory for any person who is not a student and students are encouraged to wear a mask if they can.
100 days of School
On Monday our Foundation students participate in their 100th day of school. These children have experienced the most extraordinary start to their schooling and have displayed exceptional resilience and self management. We are proud of them and I know their families are.
Happy 100th Day Foundations!
At the moment parents and all visitors are being discouraged from attending the school site and where business or questions can be handled by phone or email we prefer that you do.
The school is running on very reduced staffing at the moment so please be patient if phones are not answered first time.
The office will be closed between 12.30 – 1.30 each day for lunch and the office is staffed between 8.30 – 3.45pm.
2019 Annual Report to the School Community.
The 2019 Annual Report will be availlable on the school website from Monday 17 August.
Feast of the Assumption
Despite being unable to visit our churches at the moment, tomorrow is the Feast of the Assumption, maybe families could include a Hail Mary or a decade of the Rosary to their weekend
I hope everyone is staying safe and staying home, we’re all in this together and together we’ll come through.
