Schools across the country have reintroduced bubbles, face masks and
self-isolation for healthy children, The Telegraph has learned.
Headteachers have been told by ministers that many of the restrictions
which were in place last academic year are no longer necessary.
However, parents have accused schools of imposing *nonsensical*
curbs on
pupils as they return to school following the summer holidays.
Comberton Village School in Cambridgeshire told parents that it usually
prided itself on running an *extensive* after-school programme of
sporting activities including basketball, hockey, badminton and rugby.
However, the secondary school said that since it was continuing to
operate a system of *year group bubbles*, this would have a *negative
impact* on the number of clubs they would be providing this term.
Meanwhile, parents at Avanti House Secondary School in Stanmore, north
London, have been told that children will still be grouped into bubbles
and encouraged to adhere to social distancing rules.
*It is heartbreaking that while adults are getting their lives back to
normal, children are still leading their school lives under the weight
of these restrictions,* said Molly Kingsley, co-founder of the parent
campaign group UsForThem.

*It makes an absolute mockery of any talk of recovery and building
back.
You can*t build back if you are still bombing. This is nonsensical.
*It is the same pattern we have seen all along: an excessive deference
to Covid safety over and above child welfare and it has to stop.*
A primary school in Cumbria has told pupils that if they are a close
contact of anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19, they should
stay
at home until they can provide a negative PCR test result.
This contradicts government guidance which says pupils should be off
school only if they test positive for Covid or are showing symptoms.
*That could mean three or four days off school before you get your
negative result,* one parent said. *It feels like headteachers*
personal
feelings on the topic are overreaching into their professional role.
They think they can decide their own rules.*
The headteacher of Winterton Community Academy in Scunthorpe, north
Lincolnshire has told parents that if cases rise they may segregate
pupils who do not take lateral flow tests.
In a letter to parents, the school*s headteacher said: *In the event
that the risk of Covid-19 increases, for example through identified
cases in school or, if locally the infection rate increases, then we
reserve the right to escalate our contingency plans and put in place
limited or alternative access and provision for any student who does
not
have consent to test.*

All secondary school pupils are encouraged to take two lateral flow
tests each week at home, but this is not a legal requirement and
students should not be *denied education* if they do not take them,
official guidance says.
A private school chief said that pupils will still be expected to clean
their desks and wear face coverings in corridors as classes resume.
Samantha Price, president of the Girls* Schools Association which
represents the country*s leading girls* independent schools, said that
headteachers are acting with a *degree of caution*.
Mrs Price, who is also the headteacher of Benenden School in Kent,
*We are going to continue with cleaning desks after lessons and asking
students to do that because I think that*s reassuring for teachers, but
it*s also reassuring for cleaners who are going into those rooms as
well.*
*In our school we are going to ask students to wear masks in corridors
and in public areas and obviously there*s still going to be testing,*
she added.
Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of School and
College
Leaders, said that the desire for heads to act cautiously is *hardly
surprising given the bitter experience of the past 18 months* and also
given the *uncertainty* about the risks posed by Covid this term.
The only *healthy* way to stop the pandemic, thereby saving lives, in
the U.K. & elsewhere is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
finding out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who
among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or
asymptomatic) in order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John
15:12) for them to call their doctor and self-quarantine per their
doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the
best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the Alpha lineage
mutations and others like the Gamma, Beta, Epsilon, Iota, Lambda, Mu &
Delta lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render current
COVID vaccines no longer effective.
Indeed, I am wonderfully hungry ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
and hope you, Michael, also have a healthy appetite too.
So how are you ?
...because we mindfully choose to openly care with our heart,
HeartDoc Andrew <><

So how are you ?
I am wonderfully hungry!
While wonderfully hungry in the Holy Spirit, Who causes (Deuteronomy
8:3) us to hunger, I note that you, Michael, not only don't have
COVID-19 but are rapture (Luke 17:37) ready and pray (2 Chronicles
7:14) that our Everlasting (Isaiah 9:6) Father in Heaven continues to
give us "much more" (Luke 11:13) Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) so
that we'd have much more of His Help to always say/write that we're
"wonderfully hungry" in **all** ways including especially caring to
http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John 15:12 as shown by
http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) with all glory (
http://bit.ly/Psalm117_ ) to GOD (aka HaShem, Elohim, Abba, DEO), in
the name (John 16:23) of LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen.

Laus DEO !

Be hungrier, which really is wonderfully healthier especially for
diabetics and other heart disease patients:

http://HeartMDPhD.com/HeartDocAndrewToutsHunger (Luke 6:21a) with all
glory ( http://HeartMDPhD.com/Psalm117_ ) to GOD, Who causes us to
hunger (Deuteronomy 8:3) when He blesses us right now (Luke 6:21a)
thereby removing the http://HeartMDPhD.com/VAT from around the heart

...because we mindfully choose to openly care with our heart,
