Dear Parent / Carer
Students Absent from School in Years 11-16
Please remember to contact school every day before 9.00am when your child is absent.
Please contact us by email Absence@trinity.cumbria.sch.uk or 01228 516051 and select Option 2.
It has been confirmed that any student who has tested positive in the last 90 days should not have their LFD test at school at the start of term. Instead, they should resume their twice weekly tests at home as soon as they can. If you had given permission and your child was coming to school for the test there is now no need to come. You do not need to let us know in advance. Students in Year 7 and 12 should attend for photographs and biometrics as stated in the letter sent last week even if they are not having the test. Students who are coming for a test should bring a face covering to wear in the test centre.
As you will have seen in the news and heard locally, this half term has been significantly disrupted by the increase in cases of Covid-19. We have had a number of cases of Covid reported to us since half term and during this last week we have been tracing contacts on an almost daily basis….
Please read the full letter below for more information and guidance for September testing and a link to the consent form:
Following information given to us by Public Health last week, we have given a message to students today. This can be also found on the school website. Please can you make sure that your children are aware of it.
