Thank you to everyone for being vigilant in monitoring your child’s symptoms. Please may I remind everyone that no child should be sent to school in the morning with one or more of these symptoms?
- a high temperature – this means he/she feels hot to touch on his/her chest or back.
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours.
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
