I am writing to keep you informed, as much as I can regarding the current situation. I say as much as I can , because as I`m sure as you are also experiencing , things are rapidly changing all the time!
We are continuing to take precautions against the coronavirus - regular handwashing , anti-bacterial handwashes , staggered toilet breaks etc and as usual , the children have responded magnificently , although whoever decided upon the term “social distancing” has evidently never worked in a school….!!
The school is currently open as usual , and the staff are working tirelessly to ensure that your children are happy and safe every day.This of course despite the fact that a large majority are parents themselves and of course are sharing your worries and concerns about everything that is happening!
As long as we remain open , you know that we will continue to help , support and be positive for your child at all times.
In the event of the school having to close , we are also working tirelessly to produce resources that you will be able to use at home with your children. If your child is currently at home , we are unable to send any resources just yet , as they are not quite finished.
This is an unprecedented time for us , and we are trying our best to ensure that everything is done properly , but please bear with us for a short time as it`s just as new for us as it is for you!
The packs and resources will be available through our website - www.rhyd-y-grug.cymru. If you have difficulty in accessing the internet , please let us know. The vast majority of the tasks that we are preparing will not require you to print the resource , so hopefully that will help.
I will contact you again once a decision is made regarding school closures with more information , and please remember that IF the school closes , we will still be working and be on hand to give advice and help. We have started setting up a dedicated home task e-mail address so that you can ask any questions that may arise.
As a parent , I can understand fully the sense of worry that you all must be feeling , but please be assured that all of us at Ysgol Rhyd y Grug will continue to provide your children with the best possible care in our caring , supportive environment.
Please stay safe!
