Dear Parents and Carers
It’s been another busy day at Lakeside getting the school ready for the children’s return next week. Staff continue the huge task of cleaning and marking out each classroom to make sure there is a safe distance between each desk.
Children will be using different doors to the usual ones, so Mr Carey has been painting different coloured lines on the pathways for the children to follow to their classrooms.
Meanwhile, the keyworker hub is still operating, and teachers are still uploading learning and activities for the children each day and supporting them through Google classrooms and on Hwb.
You have probably heard that Cardiff Council has decided that schools will not be open for the final week of July. This means that the summer term will finish as originally planned on Friday 17 July.
While that means that we have had to make a change to our plans, we are determined that every child from Reception to Year 6 will have three opportunities to attend school this term. Children will therefore come in for one morning during each of the three weeks.
We will write to you individually this week with details of your child’s specific day and start / finish times. This will then be the same for each of the three weeks.
Thank you to those parents who responded to the online survey to confirm whether their child(ren) will be attending school this term. This information is being used to make sure that siblings can attend on the same day and that only a safe number of children are in school at any one time.
If you did not respond to the survey but want your child to come back to school this term, you need to email us urgently or your child will not be able to return next week. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be in touch again tomorrow with details but, as always, feel free to drop me a line if you have any immediate questions.
Stay safe and well.
