Dear Parents

 

The Second week into the Autumn Term has gone by in a flash and our children are becoming more familiar with the new ‘normal’.  Talk of bubbles has become second nature!  We have been very impressed with the children’s maturity and conscientiousness in following these new rules.

 

Congratulations should be given to all our new members of our CHS community, particularly those in Junior One, who have settled in so well.

 

You should have all received invitations to your ‘Meet the Teachers’ via Google meet. We do appreciate that the times may not fit with everyone’s diaries but hopefully you will understand that with a school split into three bubbles and every effort going into maintaining them safely, the timings for these events have proven very tricky.  If you are unable to attend your form meeting, please rest assure that all relevant information will be posted in video format on your child’s Google Classroom (please note that parents will be muted during the live presentation), along with any FAQ’s from the meeting itself. Individual parent/teacher meetings are scheduled for the week before half term, dates and times will be allocated in due course.

 

Please note that no un-prescribed medication is being administered by the staff at CHS this term due to Covid restrictions and guidelines.  Please ensure any prescriptions are clearly labelled with your child’s name on in a labelled see through bag.

 

Seasonal bugs are about and there is every likelihood that children are going to be picking them up.  Current advice is that if there are cold symptoms, including a runny nose, phlegm and sneezing, then this is likely to be a cold.  Please do keep your children at home if they are too unwell to be in school.  A fever, continuous cough, loss of smell and taste should be checked with NHS 119 and advice followed. 

 

Please note that all those involved in the Football Club on Thursdays and Fridays will receive confirmation of cancellation by 2pm that day.  We are unfortunately unable to bring this club indoors so if it does rain heavily, it will be cancelled.

 

Wishing you a restful weekend

 

Best wishes
