Dear Parents and Carers,
What difficult times we are now all facing.  As I’m sure you are aware, all schools will be closed as of tomorrow afternoon, until further notice. I will be meeting with the other Heads this morning to work out what the Government’s directive regarding a provision for students who have EHCPs, a social worker and/or are the children of front line workers means in practice. If your child falls into this category, will be contacting you later today in this regard.
It is with regret that I’m now forced to collapse the time table for today and tomorrow as, due to high numbers of staff having to self-isolate, I simply do not have enough staff to offer taught lessons. Instead, we will be offering your child an hour and half slot either today or tomorrow, to come in and collect the work folder that we have put together for them, have a cuppa with us and say goodbye.  Your child is being contacted with information about this, as I write this email to you.
As it has also been declared that our students will now not be sitting their GCSEs this summer, it is unlikely that your child will return to school at The Connected Hub. We are deeply saddened that your child’s time with us has ended so abruptly. However, we will remain available both to your child and to you as parents/carers throughout the coming weeks and possibly months, via email, phone and Google.  Information about this, is contained in your child’s folder.  We will also send this out to you by email, in due course.
If it is at all possible, we will endeavour to organise a Class of 2020 gathering in the autumn. It may not be a PROM, but we’ll find a way to mark their moving on to the next stage in their lives.  We’ll be in touch about this nearer to the time.
It’s been our absolute honour and pleasure to work with you as a family since September.  From all the staff at the Connected Hub, we send our love and good wishes and hope that you all manage to stay safe and well.
With kind regards,

Amanda and the The Connected Hub team.
