We continue to follow National advice and that issued by Highland Council on the rapidly changing Coronavirus situation.
Self Isolation – It has been announced by the UK/Scottish Government that as of 16 March anyone developing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, however mild, should stay at home for 7 days from the onset of symptoms as per existing advice. In addition, it is now recommended that anyone living in the same household as a symptomatic person should self-isolate for 14 days.
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of new continuous cough and/or high temperature.
Information for the public on COVID-19, including stay at home advice for people who are self-isolating, can be found on NHS Inform.
Further, people are advised to take social distancing measures to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19. In particular, this is strongly advised for people aged 70 or over, people with underlying medical conditions and pregnant women. Further advice on these measures will be available on NHS Inform shortly.
After school Clubs – All after school clubs (in the Primary School) are now cancelled until further notice. We are awaiting an update from Highlife Highland in regard their clubs.
Visitors to school – We will have no outside visitors e.g. Forest Schools, Gaelic Bookbug etc until further notice.
Jotters – Due to increasing absences, we have issued jotters today with logins to school specific websites where children can access work in the eventuality of a school closure as well as, use this to record in. As detailed earlier in the week, class blogs will be the main communication from school in this case. For those already absent, teachers will aim to email home these logins.
Further information will follow on delivering digital learning opportunities in the event of a school closure.
