For the time being, the following changes implemented at the start of the year will continue:
- All P.E. lessons, organized trips, events, and internal gatherings, such as assemblies and performances, will remain on hold
- Extra-curricular activities taking place at school, either within or outside of official hours, will remain on hold
- Cafeterias must be closed, and shared eating spaces should not be used
- At Dunecrest, we are restricting parent and visitor access to the school.
These rules are in place to minimize the spread of COVID-19, and to ensure that students are still able to benefit from face-to-face learning. Over the last two weeks, and for the next two weeks, our aim is to keep the school open, under the understanding that the safety of students and staff is paramount. We have KHDA approval to shut the entire school or sections of the school if deemed necessary.
We are working in a highly changeable environment, and I am sure you understand that we are making important operational decisions daily. The KHDA is supporting us in our decisions so that Dunecrest can continue to provide students with high-quality education.
The KHDA will be reviewing these guidelines at the end of January. Their website has a COVID section with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that is regularly updated, which you may find useful.
Thank you for your support, have a restful weekend.
