Covid 19 Advice

This is an ever-changing situation - we will endeavour to update as often as possible, time allowing.

13th March 2020

Dear Parent/Carer

If your child is displaying any of these agreed symptoms:

• New cough, high temperature (flu like symptoms)
• Shortness of breath

please do not send them to school. Any young person in school with such symptoms will be asked to report to reception so that parents can come to collect and take home.  Other than collecting pupils we ask that parents do not come into the school building.

Full family self-isolation (currently for a minimum of 14 days) is recommended.

Please call 111 or check NHS24 online for further advice, or contact your GP by telephone. Please do not visit your GP surgery in the first instance.

Meantime, all staff and pupils will be directed to ensure frequent hand washing, and designated staff in school will be cleaning key areas on a regular basis during the day.

Please ensure that your child is aware of the importance of regular hand washing, not putting hands near eyes, mouth, etc, whenever possible. Please also ensure that they understand the importance of looking after soap/soap dispensers in the school building.

Any further information relating to COVID 19 will be shared as and when received from Highland Council and/or Scottish Government.
