Despite parents being sent notice of the rules for children in isolation and the letter posted yesterday from the Head of DCC Health, it has come to my attention that some children who are supposed to be in isolation are not.
ISOLATION IS A LEGAL DUTY - IT IS NOT AN OPTION.
If families require further guidance on the rules or confirmation of how they can be supported during an isolation, please visit the Covid 19 page on this website.
The cases in Derby are on the rise and if guidance is not followed will continue to do so. School staff and many parents are doing all that is possible to prevent further bubble closures; some selfish acts are undermining this.
If children who have been identified as needing to isolate are mixing out of the home, it is only a matter of time before I am once again directed to close school to some, be it a bubble or other close proximity contact, - but possibly all.
