Devon County Council's Open letter to parents regarding school re-opening

An open letter for parents has been prepared which outlines DCC’s current position around schools re-opening from 1st June.  This is attached and will be posted on the Devon County Council website. 

Monday 11th May 2020

The Government has recently announced its intention to allow Primary schools to re-open to children in the Early Years, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, with provision being offered after the half term break - 1st June 2020.

This area of the website has been designed to keep you up to date with how this phased return to school could be implemented while giving very careful consideration to all aspects of school life.

Please see Mrs Nicholas's initial letter below with more details to follow as we receive it.
