Dear Parent / Carer,
RE: Red Warning of Extreme Heat
Penn Fields School will remain open on Monday18th July as it stands - however if the building is uncontrollably hot on Monday morning, the decision will be made to keep the school closed to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff - A decision on Tuesday will be made on Monday evening.
Please follow the below steps to ensure the safety of your child:
If your child has a medical condition that is effected by extreme weather, please consider keeping them at home to ensure they remain safe and can be closely monitored.
Send your child to school with a bottle of water that can be refilled throughout the day.
Send your child to school with a sun hat.
Ensure your child is wearing sun lotion and that they come to school with some to reapply - outdoor play will be limited.
Ensure your child is dressed appropriately - allow them to come to school in their PE kit / any shorts and a school T-shirt / please ensure they are not wearing a jumper.
At this point, there will be no access to remote learning for those students remaining at home.
