Update Letter from R Hunter regarding the Omicron variant (10 Dec 2021)

Dear Parent/Carers,

Covid /Omicron Mitigations

As I write you I am aware of the ever-changing landscape because of the emergence of the Omicron variant. Local authority briefings are providing Head Teachers with updated information.

I am meeting with colleagues, representative of our Health and Safety committee, pupil leaders and representatives of the Parent Council on Monday evening at 3.45pm to discuss out next steps and the possible re-introduction of certain mitigations.

The advice for now is to do all we can to ensure we apply the FACTS principles.

Face covering (unless exempt)

Avoid Crowds

Clean Hands (use hand sanitisation stations in school)

Two meters distancing (for adults in school)

Self -Isolate

Please discus the importance of the all the mitigations with your children. If there are any positive cases in your household over the weekend please contact the following email addresses:

Admin@Gracemount.edin.sch.uk

covidcasemanagement@edinburgh.gov.uk

 

I expect there to be further communications next week in preparation for the new term in January. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss any matter.

Yours faithfully,

Ross Hunter

Head Teacher
