Do not send your child to the academy– please be reminded that if a member of your household is awaiting a COVID-19 test due to having symptoms, the whole household should isolate until the test result is received, and students must not return to school until a negative test result is received. Please advise school of the reason for the absence as Covid absences are exempt from usual attendance processes.

We do not require evidence of a negative test, but do require evidence of a positive result.
