A busy week as ever, December begins next week and we are now entering the final period before the Christmas break.
Some key points;
As the Covid presence continues, all families / youngsters must be mindful of the steps we should continue to take. Govt guidance has echoed the importance of ventilating rooms, but with colder air, youngsters should wear a jumper / layer to help with comfort if needed. In addition to this;
-PLEASE bring your own masks, we have issued thousands, literally, and need people to look for them in the house before they leave
-Hand hygiene, keep 2m from adults where possible, make use of external exits, use our one way systems
-TESTING has been highlighted as an essential support to keeping us all safe, please continue to test and record results
