COVID Case in Jade & Garnet Classes

Saturday 26th September 2021

Dear Parents of Jade and Garnet

A member of staff who works in both classes has tested positive for Covid today.

As a result of the risk assessment of this particular positive case, and following consultation with Hounslow’s Public Health, the school is taking a precautionary approach while we await the PCR test results on other staff and pupils.

This means we are restricting attendance for Monday and Tuesday this week for Jade and Garnet classes.

When the results are back and there are no further positive cases, the classes should be able to return but we will keep you informed as soon as we know.

Cases are rising in this age group which is worrying and by moving these two classes onto remote learning, we have a better chance of keeping them, staff and our community Covid safe and therefore in school as much as possible.

Please be extremely aware of ANY symptoms that your child may have, (not just the three on the NHS website), and let us know immediately as this will impact on our assessment moving forwards.

As your child has been a direct contact with a positive case, please can we ask you to get a PCR test for your child and email office@hhin.org with the results.

Please log into Google classroom tomorrow to see the day’s activities and zoom sessions.

Yours sincerely,

Ms Harper-Quinn

Headteacher
