Mass rapid testing is now available at Hillingdon for school aged children and their families.

Dear Parents/Carers,

In line with recent government announcement, mass rapid testing is now available in Hillingdon for school aged children and their families/household contacts, regardless of whether symptoms of Covid-19 are presenting.  We would encourage as many families as possible to take up this offer to support infection control in our community.

Please see the guidance attached  here

Please be reminded that positive tests results for students taken up to and including Sunday 20th December should be reported to the school via the following email addresses so we can advise close contacts as swiftly as possible.

In terms of updated figures, we have had 3 positive cases amongst students since September and 2 staff.  Neither member of staff had had any close contact with students.  In 2 of the 3 student cases, close contacts have had to be informed and isolated.  In these cases students have all been set work via google classrooms.  The most recent positive case was today which you will be aware of from the letter sent home this morning.  Please be reminded you will be contacted separately where your child has had close contact with a positive case.  Please ensure that where your child is advised to isolate, either via the school or NHS test and trace, that the 10 day isolation period is strictly observed.

Yours sincerely

Tash Hurtado
