Corona Virus Update (Updated 24/3 @ 2.07pm)

Dear Bell Baxter High School Community

We understand that this is a really difficult and anxious time for you and your families.  There are lots of different demands on you all right now in terms of working from home, making sure the children are still learning and caring for others.

Please do not try to do everything at once – we are in this for the long haul.  Our teachers have posted lots of work on Teams, and I am sure our primary colleagues are doing the same.  This may seem overwhelming.  Please be reassured that teachers do not expect you, as parents, to be able to deliver all of this work, or that it will all be completed immediately.

In these early days in particular, there will be issues around technology, sharing laptops, not being able to access what we need to.  That’s all ok.  The most important thing right now is to maintain some sort of routine, look after each other, and pay attention to our mental health.  The pressure on us all is huge right now.  These are very strange times for everyone.  Please be kind to yourselves and give yourself time to adjust.

Keep in touch, stay indoors and be safe.

Carol Ann
