Students in Year 9 and 11 at St Michael’s Catholic High School in Garston have been told to stay at home and not attend schools as a result of students and a member of staff testing positive for COVID-19.
The school have reassured parents that they are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England
In a letter, that can be seen on the school’s website, from headteacher Mr Edward Conway, he says: “You will probably be aware that there has been a significant increase in COVID-19 cases in Watford over the past 10 days. This has had an adverse effect on numerous schools including St Michael’s.
“As a result, we have had to ask Years 9 and 11 to study from home. This is due to some students and a member of staff testing positive and others having to self-isolate.
“Please be assured that we are doing everything possible to keep everyone safe within the St Michael’s community. The safety of students, staff and all of our families is of the upmost importance and adherence to the measured outlined is essential in minimising the risk of transmission.”
