First allow us to thank all those who continuously show support and understanding as we, as school and community, respond to the unexpected invasion of COVID-19. We are proud of the way most of our students, parents, employees and community leaders handled the demands we are faced with to protect everyone as we continue to educate our students during the most unusual of circumstances.However new concerns and worries arise. May we bring to your attention that it has come to our knowledge that some of our students, irrespective of the guidelines issued by the Maltese health authorities to limit travel to essential travel only, travelled abroad during the winter break. Following this update, a link to guidelines on restrictions and safe travel was posted in all class fb pages during the holidays. May we kindly ask all those who travelled or have spent time with relatives who have recently travelled to come forward in order that we may explain procedures to be taken depending on the country they visited or travelled from. Also, it would be greatly appreciated if we are informed beforehand when you or any member of your family need to travel. Your commitment and positivity is our key to success. Together we must be proactive and prepared during these ever-changing times in order that we may continue to educate our children. Let us together try to continue school as normal with enhanced safety precautions, in order to possibly prevent the transition to a hybrid or full distance learning.
Last but not least kindly be advised that sometimes should there be a cause of concern the authorities may request that you present your passport for verification of travel. In any case, your sincerity is our main tool. Our goal is to find the best way to have our students and staff as safe as possible to ensure the health and well-being of all.Thank you for your continued cooperation as we strive to do what is best for ALL of our students and employees during these challenging times.
I hope that you are well and had restful holidays. This note is to inform you that in cases where students were abroad, the regulations set out by the Superintendent of Health, have to be observed, particularly, those that stipulate a quarantine period. Kindly refer to the link of the legal notices attached here for your reference. https://deputyprimeminister.gov.mt/en/health-promotion/covid-19/Pages/travel.aspx
