Young children are to be kept at home for ten days after a classmate tested positive for coronavirus.
Parents of children in nursery and reception at Haxby Road Primary School were sent a letter today (Sunday, 11 October) informing them of the situation.
It says: “Regrettably, there has been a confirmed case of Covid-19 within our school.
“As your child has shared the same ‘bubble’ with the affected case your child must now stay at home and self-isolate.”
Those affected will be allowed back into school on Wednesday, 21 October.
The letter says other members of the household can continue as normal during the child’s self-isolation.
And there is no need for anyone to be tested for Covid-19.
The school remains open for other bubble groups as normal.
It comes two days after another York primary school, Burton Green, confirmed that a member of the school community had tested positive.
A small number of children who had been in contact with the individual concerned were asked to self-isolate at home for 14 days.
