I am writing to let you know that from Monday 8th February 2021, most staff at Rainbow Primary School will be participating in the LFT (Lateral Flow Test) twice weekly. This will inform us of positive cases of Covid-19 in staff who don’t have any symptoms but are still infectious and able to pass the virus on to others. Any member of staff testing positive will self-isolate at home with all members of their household and support bubble and book a PCR test to confirm the positive result.
This is another step we are taking in order to ensure that your children are as safe as possible when attending our school. However, it may mean that we will need to close your child’s bubble and require your child to self-isolate, if they have been in a close contact of a staff member who has tested positive. In the unlikely event of the PCR test result being negative, you will be informed immediately, the bubble will reopen and your child will no longer be required to self-isolate.
We will let you know via parent mail or Class Dojo message (and later by letter) if your child’s bubble is closing, so please look out for and read ALL messages from Rainbow Primary School – but especially those on a Monday or Thursday morning, as these are the days when staff will be home testing.
If you have any questions, please contact us by telephone (01274 221400) and we will be happy to help in any way that we can.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.
