Alsager School

Message from Mrs O’Neill

Last week I talked about tired students and how they definitely needed time to recharge their batteries over the holidays.  This week I think we can add adults into that, too.   Having spoken to many parents and staff over the past week, we are all clinging on to next Friday when we can enjoy a slightly slower pace of life.  It is also the time of year when we can justifiably start to watch Christmas films and discuss which one is our favourite. 

The news of the vaccine is promising and for all of you who enjoy a pub quiz, Margaret Keenan will be a name to remember.  I have sent out information regarding how we will conduct our ‘track and trace’ during the Christmas period.  A reminder that if any member of your household is awaiting test results or has Covid 19 symptoms, that your child must not come to school.  Children should only be tested if they have any symptoms.  Fortunately, the number of cases in Cheshire East is declining and if we are all careful over the coming weeks, we can hopefully avoid a spike in January.

It was nice last week to be able to watch televised football games with supporters in the stadium.  I hope to see the Alex fans tomorrow at Gresty Road.  With 2,000 of us being allowed into the ground, it could possibly feel like a full house.  

I hope you all have a restful weekend.  Thank you, as always, for your continued support.  Our students have coped really well this term and that is testament to the support they have at school, but most importantly from home.
