LPPS closed until further noticePosted on: March 18th - 2020
Thank you so much for all your support and understanding during this difficult and unprecedented time. This week, the government announced some extraordinary new measures, which have affected our school community.
Our current situation is this:
- Following communications today, 34% of our staff team are not in school and are self- isolating over the next 2 weeks due to experiencing a new dry cough or fever or due to family members displaying the same symptoms or are doing so due to falling into a vulnerable group of individuals. This number is likely to rise in the next few days.
- Some parents have let us know that their children or families have the symptoms so need to self-isolate or are doing so due to falling into a vulnerable group of individuals.
Looking at the statistics above it is clear that staffing classes and keeping all of the children safe in school will become unmanageable if we remain open after today.
I am writing to confirm that with a heavy heart we will be closing Langley Park Primary School as of Thursday 19th March 2020 until further notice. We will keep you informed via ParentMail.
Therefore today, Wednesday 18th March 2020, will be the children’s last day until we reopen.
We have been working hard before now to prepare for home learning in the event of closure and you will receive the details of this in due course.
Once again, thank you so much for your continued support and understanding at this difficult time. Kind regards,
Mrs Kluzek Head Teacher
