With the high rates of COVID-19 in North Tyneside currently, we are asking parents to let the school know if their child tests positive for COVID-19 during the half term break.
If your son or daughter receives a positive COVID-19 test after Friday 23rd October 2020 please contact the school immediately on firstname.lastname@example.org or contact your childs’ teacher through Seesaw or Tapestry and they will fwd it to me. You must provide the following information:
Name of child
Date of the COVID-19 test
Does the child have symptoms? Yes or No
What date did the symptoms start?
What date did the child last attend school?
It is very important that you provide this information so that the school can identify any close contacts that your son or daughter may have had in school during their infectious period. The school will then follow up close contacts and request that they isolate for 14 days to prevent further transmission of COVID-19.
Please note that you should also report any close contacts that your child has had outside the school setting through NHS Test and Trace.
Thank you for your help in this matter
