This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

The small number of students who have been in direct prolonged contact with the confirmed case will have received an individual letter and will be staying at home for 14 days.
