Dear Comber Grove Community,
I hope you all are remaining safe and well during this difficult time. I am writing to you in line with the latest Department for Education Guidance that was released on Friday evening.
School is closed to most children. As the virus continues to spread we have to reassess continuously to ensure the risk is minimised as much as possible. The main message if that:
Children should stay at home if they can.
We can offer limited places to pupils with an EHCP, those who are vulnerable and those with a parent who is a critical worker where they cannot stay at home with another parent or carer.
Please think carefully about your situation at home and keep your child at home if you can. We must do what we can to stop the spread of this virus so that we can get schools open normally as soon as possible.
We are awaiting on further information about the vaccine being rolled out which we hope will be the beginning of the turning point.
Thank you to those who have asked for a device to be provided, we will be getting these to you this week. We are organising food parcels to replace school lunches. On top of this we are offering FREE breakfast food boxes for every family – look out for text messages that will let you know collection times. Please wear a mask when collecting.
Please do not hesitate to to use ‘Class Dojo’ or the school email to keep in touch with us. The school phone lines will be open between 8am and 3:30pm at this time after which you can leave a voice message. The answerphone will be checked every morning.
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and flexibility at this time. I am in awe with the way the staff members have adapted to providing an online education for your children in very difficult circumstances.
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
