Dear parents,

I want to inform you that we have a Covid-19 outbreak in our Lower Primary. As per the instructions of the Balearic health authorities, all children in Lower Primary are to be in quarantine until (including) Monday, December 13th. Children will be able to come back to school on Tuesday, December 14th.
What to do: families in Lower Primary

As per the instruction of the health authorities, every child in Lower Primary
must be tested using a Antigen test
. If a child tests positive on the Antigen test, the child is required to be subsequently tested using a PCR test. To make an appointment for a PCR test, you can call INFOCOVID  at 900 100 971.

For close contacts of a child in Lower Primary that has tested positive, health authorities require you to take the following actions: If a close contact is fully vaccinated, she/he can continue to carry out essential activities, like going to work or shopping. 

If a close contact is not fully vaccinated, she/he is required by the health authorities to isolate at home until December 13th (inclusive). Further, the child must remain in her/his room. If this is not the case, close contacts are required to remain in confinement for an additional 10 days. A ‘close contact‘ is anyone who has been in contact with a child indoors – without mask and safety distance – for more than 15 minutes. Typically, this includes parents, siblings, relatives, or close friends.

For families with children that have not tested positive, the child must remain at home until December 13th and be tested regularly. Parents can continue carrying on with their regular life.

It is very important to notify the school immediately should your child in Lower Primary test positive in the coming days.

For Lower Primary, we will switch to remote learning starting tomorrow, Thursday 8th. We will follow up with detailed instructions later today.
What to do: the rest of the school

For all other classes (Casa, Upper Primary, Secondary), we will continue regular on-site teaching until further notice. I will keep on updating you right away – by WhatsApp for urgent issues and by email – of any future changes.
We wish all families with a child that has tested positive a speedy recovery. For all others, please exercise prudence and keep safe.
with warm regards,


Montserrat Povill Pacheco
Director
