Like us, you will have numerous questions and concerns following tonight’s announcement. We like yourselves I’m sure, knew this would have to happen at some point, but had no prior warning of this. I just need to take some time to process what this means and create a strategy to move us forward. As from Friday afternoon, school will remain closed to the majority of pupils until further notice. Please rest assured, we predicted this and have been working hard to plan and prepare a virtual learning offer for your child.
Tonight we have been asked to consider an alternative provision for the children of key-workers such as NHS staff, police and delivery drivers. To help me plan for this provision I would really appreciate it if you could email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you fall into the category and where alternative childcare arrangements cannot be made. Please state why you believe you fall into this category and your hours of work. Please email me by 12pm Thursday 19th March at the latest but ASAP if possible.
Despite these difficult and challenging times, we are committed to working together to support you and your family.
