Alert Level 1 Update
8 June, 2020.
The Prime Minister has just announced that the country will move to Alert Level 1 at midnight tonight. For Wellsford School that means.....
1) We will no longer have staff on Gate Duty in the mornings. However, parents are asked to continue saying goodbye at the gate, not because of Covid-19, but because doing so recently has supported our youngsters to develop their self-management skills, and we'd love that to continue.
2) Contact tracing diaries are no longer required at school. But the Government encourages everyone to maintain personal tracing diaries, so the school will be displaying a QR code for parents who have the App, can use it. We will also keep our visitor log at the office for anyone attending a meeting.
3) We will maintain our teaching of good personal hygiene, namely - stay home if you are sick - wash your hands well and often - and sneeze and cough into your elbow.
Thank you for being such an understanding and supportive community during this whole Covid episode. Your cooperation has made the task much easier.
Take care, Dave.
