Re: Closing of Rother Schools
I hope you all had a good Christmas and managed to get some rest after a busy and stressful year.
I am sure you are aware of the announcement by the government last night regarding the closing of schools in Rother. From Tuesday 5th January the school will only be open to children whose parents are keyworkers or those classed as vulnerable. If your child/ren is in either of these categories and you would like them to attend school next week can you please email the school office (email@example.com) by 9am on Monday 4th January.
Learning for children not in school will be on Google Classrooms. All children have a login and these were sent to you last term. Please let us know if you are unable to access this and we will look into this on Monday.
The government has stated that is it up to schools if nurseries attached to schools will open. We have decided that the nursery will be open as normal to those parents who wish their children to attend. Again, please email the school office by 9am on Monday 4th January to inform us if your child will be attending nursery. If you have any questions please email the office and we will get back to you during the INSET day on Monday.
We envisage that the school will run as it did in June – back to the new/old normal! We will be sending out further information during the INSET day on Monday e.g. school meals, when arrangements have been confirmed.
I wish you all a happy new year, hopefully we will see you all soon.
