Lockdown Learning

Dear Parent/Guardian


We received further guidelines from the Department of Education today concerning Lockdown Learning.

All learners NOT REPORTING to school without a formal letter or submission of a doctor’s note indicating their comorbidities are considered to have dropped out and do not fall under approved home schooling.

These children will be de-registered from our school and reported to the Department of Education as “Dropped Out” learners.


If you have completed the official documentation and submitted to the school, you can ignore this letter.


Please complete the attached documentation by Monday 14th September 2020 or your child must return to school according to his/her group on Monday or Tuesday the latest.

Application for exemption of school attendance during COVID-19

Kind Regards

G A Pitchers
