Dear Beyond Distinction Families,
In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, we are actively monitoring the situation and will be following advice from the Department of Health and the relevant regulatory bodies.
Should your child feel unwell, or presenting flu like symptoms including fevers, coughs and/or diarrhea in the 48hrs before attendance, please seek medical clearance before participating. To reduce the spread of illnesses, staff or children with flu like symptoms will be sent home immediately and medical clearances requested before returning.
To help safeguard the health and well-being of our staff, students and their families, we are taking a number of active measures to support our community:
CREDITS: Until the end of Term 1 (9th April 2020), all absences / non-attendance requests with 24hrs notice before attendance - will be credited towards your account (valid for use within the next 12 months).
SCHOOL HOLIDAYS PROGRAM POSTPONED: Sadly, in light of the current situation, our 2020 Autumn (April) School Holiday Program will also be postponed.
HYGIENE: Since the week before, we are implementing more regular hand washing with soap & water. Also, some students are bringing in personal hand sanitisers to the academy, please remind them to not rub their faces or eyes or touch other students immediately after use. Many of these products are 80-90% alcohol based and could cause serious injury to sensitive areas.
We apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disappointment caused, however the health & well-being of our staff and student community remains our highest priority.
Should you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call us on 04575 88812.
The Beyond Distinction Team
