Waar elke kind vlerke kry om te vlieg en wortels om te groei/Where every child gets wings to fly and roots to grow

Dear Parents

Covid 19 has brought a lot of disruption and uncertainty. The school must abide to all the instructions of the Department of Education. The instructions come through very slowly and unclearly, so we ask for everyone’s patience.

1. TIME-TABLE: 08 – 12 JUNE 2020

2. REOPENING OF SCHOOLS (PRELIMINARY)

June 8 – Gr 7
July 6 – Gr R, 1, 2, 3 and 6
3 Aug – Gr 4 and 5

We have applied for Gr 4 and 5 to start earlier. We are waiting for the Department’s response.

3. PERMIT
All pupils are required to have a permit. The school will issue permit to each learner on the first day their group is at the school.

4. MEDICAL CONDITIONS
Please read the section on the FEDSAS document sent to you.

5. SCHOOL FEES
Parents are kindly requested to continue paying school fees. The school still has fixed expenses and we do not want to lose teachers and increase class sizes. Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

6. EXTRA MURAL ACTIVITIES AND TOURS
The Department of Education gave an order that all extra mural activities must be cancelled. Only the Department can decide when the above may continue. The school will only start with extra murals once the Department has given permission.

7. SCHOOL FROM 6 JULY
No more than 50% of the school’s children may be on the school grounds at one time. We are now exploring the option of dividing the school into two groups. Children will then be at school every second day.

8. LEARNERS TO OTHER SCHOOLS
Can you please notify the office in writing if your child is not coming back to Laerskool Lydenburg – ontvangs@lydlaer.co.za

Be patient with your questions – more information will follow as we receive information. Safety is our top priority.

9. PARENTS
Parents are only allowed on the school grounds if a prior appointment has been arranged.

Laerskool greetings
