COVID-19 Health and Safety update

Dear Parents and Carers,

COVID-19 Health and Safety

Can all families please ensure children are not in the school grounds before their allocated time for entry to the school building, unless they are accompanying a sibling with a different start time.

Please continue to follow the guidance to support us in keeping our school open and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Guidance for St. Luke’s RC Primary:

-Only one adult to drop off/collect children
-Only attend the school grounds at the allocated drop/off collection time. This includes pupils in the upper stages who are walking themselves to school.
-All households are to remain socially distanced in the playground.
-All adults are to wear a face covering when in the school grounds, unless exempt.
-All communication with the school is to be via telephone, email, etc. Please do not approach the staff in the playground.
-If any member of your household presents with any COVID symptoms – cough, temperature, loss/change in taste or smell, do not send your child to school. Book a test for the symptomatic household member as per government guidelines and keep us informed of the result.

Our priority continues to be the health and safety of the children, families and staff of St. Luke’s RC Primary.

Many thanks,

Mrs. K. Hadden

(Acting) Head Teacher

Self-isolation period update

Dear Parent / Carer / Colleague

The Scottish Government have announced that anyone required to self-isolate, due to contact with someone who has had a positive test for coronavirus (COVID-19) will need to do so for 10 days following updated clinical advice.

The change, taking effect from Monday 14 December 2020, will apply as follows:

-Someone who, from 14 December, has been contacted through Test and Protect; their Local Health Board or Education Authority and have been notified to self-isolate, should do so for 10 days.
-Someone who was previously instructed to self-isolate will, from 14th December, be able to stop self-isolating ten days from when they were first notified to do so.
-Close contacts include members of the same household who test positive for COVID-19 – from 14th December, will now only need to isolate for 10 days, rather than 14.

Please see this letter for further information.
