Monday 4th January
Due the Prime Minister’s Announcement this evening, school will be closed tomorrow for all pupils and reopen on Wednesday 6th January for vulnerable children and the children of Key workers only. This day closure will allow us to work on a contingency plan, clarifying the number of children we will have in school from Wednesday and ensure up to date Remote Learning is readily available.
I know this change of message and decision to close schools so suddenly will be as big as shock to yourselves at it us to us. When we reopened last June and then again in September the full closure of school was honestly not anything which I ever envisaged happening again. All of us at Jarrow Cross are greatly saddened that yet again we will not see many of our children for a number of weeks. Please be assured that just as we did in March we will keep you updated with all relevant information.
Regarding the letter sent out earlier today if you are a Key worker could you please return the information form back to school ASAP. They are also available from the school office.
I will be in touch tomorrow with more information regarding Remote Learning and further information for the children who will be in school.
Please take care, I know as a school community we will continue to work together and I hope to see you all very soon.
