COVID Case Year 9

13 May 2022 Categories Senior

Dear Parents,

We would like to inform you that we have received information about a confirmed case of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) at Campion School in Year 9.

The last day the infected person was in school was Friday  13/5/2022.

They were confirmed positive with a test on Friday, 13th May. The person concerned will be in quarantine for at least 5 days.

The pupils associated with this case are all of Year 9.

Campion School enables the “close contact protocol” for the whole year group as classes are taught in mixed groups for different subjects.

Accordingly, your child should follow the protocol:

All pupils (regardless of vaccination/recovery status)
 School

Your child will need to present the following certificate:

  • Tuesday 17th May = Self-test (as normal)
Home

In addition to showing the above certificates to school, EODY recommend that your child takes a:

  • Saturday 14th May = Self-test

 

The certificates will be checked by their form teacher in the morning.

We strongly advise you to carry out the testing procedure as above.

Please keep us informed should your child test positive.

Please note that we are still waiting for clarification of how pupils will be able to obtain “free” tests. Therefore, you will need to purchase the required tests from your local pharmacy.

Please note in accordance with EODY’s Guidelines and Gazette’s (FEK) Regulations, we fully expect your child to be in school wearing a FFP2 mask, unless they have a positive test or are unwell.

Deep cleaning and disinfecting of the exposed locations at Campion have been completed, according to EODY’s and Ministry of Health and Education guidelines.

We would like to remind you the most common symptoms of Covid-19 infections are cough, fever and shortness of breath. Muscle aches, sore throat and fatigue are also common. Symptoms usually develop between 2-7 days after last exposure. Therefore, the advice from EODY and Campion is:

  • Monitoring your child for symptoms and performing temperature checks and Covid-19 tests as described above for 7 days.
  • Consult with your child’s physician for evaluation and need for additional testing if your child develops symptoms.

We ask everyone to continue to take the necessary precautions to remain healthy.

Due to medical privacy laws, we are unable to release the names of the infected individual with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you.

Thank you for your cooperation as we work through unprecedented challenges.

Please contact the nurse if you need  further guidance regarding the expected testing protocols.
