2018 looks to be a very busy year for us in school. There are lots of exciting trips and visits being planned as well as some different events in school. Below this newsletter is a list of known dates so far for this term. Please keep it handy. We endeavour not to change dates once they have been set, but there are times when this is unavoidable, however we will try to give as much notice as possible. I have also reminded you of the term dates for the next school year – 2018 – 2019 to assist you in planning holidays. Please remember we are asked to discourage all absences.
Hopefully the weather will be kind to us this term but in the event of severe weather we will use Twitter and the school website to post the news of a school closure. Please keep an eye on these. There is also a new Hertfordshire system for school closures and hopefully you have all received letters about this.
We have been informed of changes to advice from the NHS regarding how long children should be kept off school following sickness and diarrhoea.
Children with diarrhoea and/or vomiting should definitely be kept off school until 48 hours after their symptoms have gone.
Please remember to keep your child off school for this time even if they seem to be much better. We do not want to spread germs to other children or adults in school. If you would like further information see: www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Yourchildat school/Pages/Illness.aspx
Please remember if you have any concerns about your child at school, do not hesitate to come in to see me.
I look forward to seeing you in school in the very near future.
