Covid-19 Reminder

James Gillespies High School

Covid-19 Reminder

Dear Parent/Carer,

We would appreciate your support towards ensuring that all pupils have a face covering (and a spare) with them each day they come to school. We have some spares at reception for those who forget or lose theirs. All pupils are also encouraged to carry a small bottle of hand sanitiser. This will help avoid queuing in various parts of the school.


I’d also like to clarify what you should do if a member of your household is displaying any one of the Covid-19 symptoms.


The most common symptoms are:

  1. New continuous cough
  2. Fever/high temperature (37.8C or greater)
  3. Loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste


If any member of your household displays any of these symptoms then you should go online and book a test for that person. All members – children and adults – of your household should self-isolate (stay at home) until you get the results of the test. If the test results are negative then the children can return to school.


Thank you all for your continuing support.
