Delay to our opening date
Dear Parents and Carers
I am sure that most if not all of you are aware that as a precautionary measure Weston General Hospital has temporarily stopped accepting new patients, including into its A&E department.
As a result of this and a rise in COVID-19 cases in Weston super Mare, our ELAN School Trustees have decided to delay opening of ELAN’s 8 schools to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 pupils by one week to monitor how the situation develops.
We will now open to these year groups on Monday 15th June 2020.
Online and distance learning will continue to be provided for all pupils until they return.
We will remain open to the children of key workers and vulnerable pupils. Childcare for these groups will be available Monday to Friday until further notice
The Trustees will meet again on the 4th June 2020 to review the situation after which we will update you further.
Please note, the letter regarding our organisation we sent you all on Thursday 21st May, still stands, only the dates have changed.
Our comprehensive Parent and Staff Return to School Guide with our video to support the Guide, will now be launched on Friday 5th June.
I appreciate some of you may find this delay disappointing. I hope you will understand that decisions were taken, as always, in our children’s and community’s best interests.
Many thanks for your patience and continued support.
