Dear Parents and Carers,
I am sure you have all heard yesterday evening's announcement and already have many questions. I would like to emphasise that you had the information at exactly the same time that staff in schools around the country did. This means that we do not know any more than you do at this moment in time. The latest information from the Department of Education has reported that the list of key worker jobs will be issued tomorrow.
I would kindly ask that you do not contact the office with questions regarding the information shared by the government last night as we have not had an opportunity to meet to discuss how this will be managed in our setting. As soon as decisions have been made, these will be shared via email and until that time, the office will not be able to answer your questions.
I am sure you will appreciate the logistical challenge that has been presented to schools following this announcement and I thank you in advance for your support while we make the arrangements to comply with the government's announcement.
