Dear Parent/Carer

Although school is closed for the half term holiday next week, it is vitally important that we are notified of any cases of Covid 19 within our school community.

If one of our children tests positive through the week we may still need to close one of our bubbles and inform those children and staff that have been in close contact that they will also need to isolate.

While the school office is closed, the following email – office@monktonacademy.co.uk, will be monitored throughout next week.

Could we ask that parents inform us as soon as possible with the following information –

  • Name of child that has tested positive
  • Did they have symptoms and if so when did they start.
  • Other reason for a test – for example advised via Track and Trace
  • Date when isolation period will end

All information will be treated confidentially and any decisions regarding closure of bubbles will be done in consultation with Public Health England and South Tyneside Council.

We will endeavour to personally contact parents, but posts will also be added to our Website, the School App, Facebook and Mr Bowler’s Blog.

 

Thank you for your co-operation.

Mr Bowler
