Ellerslie students return to school


Share post:

Students of The Ellerslie School returned today after a two-week break enforced by Government when a 15-year-old student tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Deputy principal of the Black Rock, St Michael, institution, Mr Ronald Leacock, described the return to school as orderly and said parents should be comforted that protocols have been put in place to keep their children safe.

“Once their children do the right thing  . . . distance themselves, wear the masks and follow the rules that we have set down, then everything should be safe,” he said.

Leacock said it was not necessary to implement any new measures because they already had protocols in place.

He confirmed that no one else has been tested. He said the situation was “adequately ventilated” and people were informed along the way.

The Ministry of Education had announced on October 4 that The Ellerslie School would be temporarily closed from October 5 to 19 after a student there tested positive for COVID-19.

The student, a 15-year-old female who is in Fifth Form, was one of three people who had tested positive for the virus. (KG)
