The Prince’s Government is organising another mass testing campaign at the start of the new school term. From 21 February, pupils and school staff will be offered a free self-test. This will be carried out on a voluntary basis, with parental authorisation. Requests for parental authorisation have been sent out by schools via “Pronote” or “École Directe”.
This screening will consist of rapid nasal self-tests that are non-invasive, easy to use and recommended by paediatricians. A small swab to be placed at the opening of the nostrils.
The aim is to ensure that positive cases are dealt with immediately, so as to break the chains of infection rapidly and recommence on a sound basis.
The outdoor PE lessons have resumed on Monday April 26, 2021.
In application of the ministerial decisions in force, the main health measures implemented in schools are:
- Hand washing and disinfection, several times a day
- The provision of hydro-alcoholic gel
- Wearing a mask is compulsory for all staff and students from CP
- Limiting student mixing
- Respect for distance
- Reinforced disinfection and ventilation of the premises
These measures have demonstrated their effectiveness throughout the past school year: schools have welcomed all students face-to-face and no school closures linked to COVID-19 have been declared.
From Year 2 (CP) upwards, children will need to wear a mask all day.
Please wear a mask outside schools and sports facilities and avoid gathering in crowds; comply with barrier measures and ensure that children comply too.
If your child or a member of your family starts to show symptoms of COVID-19, and particularly if they have a fever (38°C or higher), do not send your child to school.
Call your usual doctor, who will advise you on what to do.
