School Closure - Useful Information
Covid-19 has changed the routine of our lives in so many ways. JFK school will be closed until the 30th March 2020. Teachers have sent home work for your child to complete during the time off. Teachers will continue to communicate through Seesaw and email. Please check your Seesaw and email notifications regularly and contact your class teacher if you need any guidance or support. These are challenging times for us all and we at JFK are glad to help in any way we can.
It is important to set up a daily routine which allows children to have a balanced day. Here are two examples of a daily routine from which you might get some ideas. You can then create your own daily routine to suit your own family circumstances.
