This week’s message is a short one. The main part is an important reminder about Covid, and we end – less seriously – with a link in case you’d like some stocking filler ideas…
Two weeks ago, we told you about a website with up-to-date Covid information for Leeds. The heatmap (the second graphic) shows that there’s still a high number of positive cases of Covid for children of primary school age – in fact, if you scroll across the second row up (children aged 5-9), you can see numbers are rising. We’re noticing this, too – in fact, we’ve had to return to remote learning for one class in Sphere Federation.
Please be alert to the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 infection:
- a high temperature
- a new continuous cough
- a loss of change to your sense of taste or smell
If your child has any of these main symptoms, even if they’re mild:
- Get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) as soon as possible.
- Keep your child at home and not have visitors until you get the test result – they can only leave home to have the test.
We’re seeing children showing various other symptoms such as sickness, colds and headaches, too. Please keep you child at home if they’re not feeling right for whatever reason.
Thank you for continuing to support us to keep our school as safe from Covid as we can.
On a lighter note, if we’re all being as cautious as we can right now, Christmas should be a better one for many this year. If you’re on the look out for some ideas for pressies, check out this Christmas book guide. Giving a book at Christmas is a great way to keep children reading!
