Newsletter - Friday 11th February 2022
11 February 2022 (by Vicky)
Hello, Friday yet again! Can’t quite believe there is only one more week until half term, at least it’s getting lighter and brighter.
Another very busy week in school.
This week has seen Internet Safety Day. This is something we cover throughout the year, not just on one day- and as always, we ask that you are very vigilant about your what children are doing online and who they might be speaking to.
It has also been Children’s Mental Health Awareness week culminating in today’s non-uniform day where the children, and staff have been encouraged to express themselves.
Linda Burniston Retiring!
After 26 years serving Sugar Hill as our cleaner in charge, Linda Burniston is retiring today. She has been an absolute asset and superstar throughout her time here. Nothing has ever been too much trouble and staff are greeted every morning by her cheerful smile and chat. She has been here throughout the pandemic, working with the cleaning team to ensure the school is a safe environment for the children every day.
She will be missed by everyone at Sugar Hill, but we wish her all the very best for her retirement, very well deserved.
We still have cases in school, thankfully these are dropping. Please continue to test the children if they show any symptoms or anyone in your household has COVID.
We will still request that you wear a mask on school premises. Thank you again for your continued support in this.
School Lunch price increase
From 4th April 2022 the price of a school lunch will rise to £2.20 per day- £11.00 per week.
Sugar Hill Coffee Stop
The coffee stop will continue to be open every Tuesday morning this half term in the dining room from 9.05am to 10.00am. Come to Entrance B as soon as you have dropped the children off. It’s cold out there- start your day with a cuppa, toast and a chat.
