School Closure from 19th March 2020
Dear Parents & Carers,
I am writing to inform you that with effect from tomorrow, Thursday 19th March 2020, St Luke’s Primary School will be closed to all pupils.
This decision has not been taken lightly and is due to staff shortages as a result of illness and self isolation. Today 10 members of staff, seven of which are teachers, are currently absent and as such we do not believe we have the capacity to safely run the school tomorrow or Friday should there be more absences.
We appreciate that the closure will have a substantial impact on families, particularly working parents in key front line services, who will have to make alternative childcare arrangements.
I will be reviewing the on-going situation again on Friday and will send a further update to all parents and carers at that time confirming whether or not we will be reopening the school on Monday 23rd March. We will be communicating via Class Dojo and the school website. If you do not have access to the internet, please let the school know as soon as possible.
Thank you for understanding in this matter. I would like to wish you all the very best during these uniquely challenging times.
Mrs Nicky Zeronian-Dalley Brian Birch
Executive Headteacher Chair of Governors
