PARENTS and carers at two Eastbourne schools are unsure whether their children will be going back this week.

This is a letter yesterday from the Roselands and Stafford Federation:

“Dear parents/carers,

I am aware tonight that a number of local schools have announced that they are delaying the opening on Monday due to the rising levels of COVID.

Monday is an INSET day anyway across the Federation.

We are monitoring the situation very closely and waiting for further guidance and will of course be in touch immediately when we have a clearer picture of the situation.

I appreciate that these are very challenging circumstances and will be worrying for you all.

Please take care and thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Warmest wishes

Kyra Siddall-Ward Executive Headteacher
