Important COVID Update – School Closure

Dear parent / carer,
It has come to our attention this evening that a pupil who was in Ballyclare Secondary School on Thursday 20th August, has since tested positive for COVID-19.
Our school is cleaned every day and was cleaned on Friday afternoon. However, to comply with guidance, our school will not be open tomorrow to allow for the 72 hour incubation period from the last clean.
Year 12 & 14 pupils will then start their term on Tuesday 25th August.
To protect the pupil’s confidentiality we cannot share the name. Track & Trace have been informed and school are taking all appropriate mitigation measures.
The school building will be a safe place to return to on Tuesday 25th August.
Kind regards,
Mrs K Bell

Principal
