CORONAVIRUS UPDATE WEDNESDAY 25th MARCH
You will all no doubt be well aware of the governments guidance to socially distance yourselves from others. This requires families and children to not go outdoors unless absolutely necessary. People should not be gathering outdoors with people not living in their household.
The reason that it is essential for all members of the community to follow the advice is to help stop the spread of the virus, save lives and to minimise the impact on the NHS.
Some families have been contacted about supplies from The Felix Project and we have also contacted families about supplies form Magic Breakfast. We will keep you informed about delivery and collection arrangements. We have also been in touch with families about receiving a packed lunch if they are eligible for Free School Meals. If deliveries of milk and fruit resume we will be in touch with families about collection from school.
If you suspect you may have symptoms of coronavirus or are worried about the coronavirus you can call 111 or contact 111online for advice and guidance.
We will continue to update our families and school community via the school website over the coming days and weeks as information comes to us and circumstances change.
It is essential for the well being of everyone that the whole community follow the guidance given by the government about social distancing – staying in your home unless absolutely necessary to go out.
This will help save lives of family members, loved ones and vulnerable people within our community. It will also help the National Health Service – the most important institution in our lives, today more than ever. Your social distancing will also help to keep our staff and their families and loved ones safe.
We have many staff who have committed to coming to Alexandra Primary while we stay open for a small number of children. I do not have the words to express my gratitude to these staff who are continuing to display such dedication and devotion to Alexandra Primary as the majority of the country are told to socially distance from the rest of the community.
