Parents and guardians are being reminded of the arrangements for the next two weeks, following the Welsh Government’s decision of a fire break to try and halt the increase in the number of coronavirus cases across Wales.
Schools are closing on Friday, 23 October for half term. Primary and special schools, together with years 7 and 8 at secondary schools will re-open the week commencing Monday, 2 November. Parents and guardians are urged to check messages from their schools for any local arrangements that may differ).
Those students in secondary schools sitting examinations will be able to go into school for the examinations themselves. All other pupils at secondary level will be learning from home for that week.
All schools are due to fully re-open as normal on Monday, 9 November.
Councillor Huw Hilditch-Roberts, Cabinet Lead Member for Children, Education and Public Engagement, said: “We would like to thank parents and guardians for their continued support.
“We recognise that the fire break or circuit breaker being implemented by Welsh Government may cause concerns and practical difficulties and people have already made big sacrifices during the previous lockdown. However, it’s essential that we all play our part in trying to stop the increase in cases in Denbighshire. That is down every one of us in Denbighshire communities working together.
“We will be issuing messages on social media during half term to remind parents and guardians of the arrangements for the following week and when we expect pupils to attend. This will be supported by communications messages from individual schools.
"School children up to and including year 8 will be returning after the half term. Other pupils from year 9 onwards will work remotely from home and will receive work packages that will be arranged through their school."
