As you will have seen in the media, the situation is rapidly evolving internationally concerning the coronavirus.
This is a new virus and its specific nature is currently unclear, however, it appears that you can have the virus at an early stage and not be showing any symptoms. This incubation period is currently considered to be 14 days.
For any student who may be at high risk of exposure because they have recently been to China or have been in close contact with someone who has visited from China, I ask that the parent/caregiver of the student delay the start of their school year for 14 days and voluntarily stay away.
As always, anyone who is unwell should not be at school.
