Dear Parents and Carers

 

It has been so lovely to have all of the children back at school for the past two weeks.  The school sounded very strange with fewer children, but now the buzz in the classrooms is back!  It is a very short half term however, and so we break for Easter next Friday (26th March), re-opening on Monday 12th April.

 

Thank you! Comic Relief - Friday 19th March

Thank you for all of your support today to raise funds for Comic Relief.  Together, we raised £108.78

 

Reminder: COVID Tests for Families

If you have not ordered or collected your family’s test kits yet, don’t forget that you can have LFTs for all adults in your household (including your support bubble).  These must not be used by primary aged children – if they get symptoms, you must take them to a test centre for a PCR test and notify school immediately using COVID@burroughgreen.cambs.sch.uk or by phoning 01638 507236.

To find out where you can collect home test kits, visit: https://find-covid-19-rapid-test-sites.maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk   

If you are unable to collect, you can order tests online to be delivered to your home: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests or by calling 119.

PTA Easter Craft - we have been so impressed at how brilliantly all BG pupils have managed through this challenging time and as Easter approaches, we want to provide each child with an Easter craft item as a token of a more hopeful and positive time ahead. This has been made possible by a generous donation and will be distributed at school at the end of next week. 

 

PTA Meeting - the next PTA meeting will be held via zoom at 8pm on Wednesday 21st April. Everyone is welcome to attend and the link will be sent out closer to the time.

 

Amazon Smile and Easyfundraising - these provide a great boost to PTA funds and thank you to everyone who has signed up already.
