School Closure/ Corona Virus – 18/03/20
Many of you will have heard the Government announcement regarding the closure of schools in Wales due to the Corona Virus.
We will be closing school to pupils from the end of tomorrow (Thursday 19th March).
We are still seeking clarification from Welsh Government on a number of details and give you more information as soon as we are able.

Many thanks for your continued support and understanding at this very difficult time.
Latest Health Advice for Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19)
Please click on the link below for updated information about the ongoing Corona virus outbreak. We will post new information when it becomes available. If you suspect that you, or your child, might have Coronavirus you should not attend school, but instead phone 111 for advice.
Please can parents note that it is important that any children who have been sick or had diarrhoea must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last time they are sick/had diarrhoea. This is clear advice from the NHS and is to prevent the spread of infections.
It is important that your child attends school on time, every day. Children who are absent will miss important learning time, and any children who arrive late in school disrupt the learning both for themselves and their classmates. At Ysgol Melyd, we continually monitor attendance. Our attendance percentage last year was 94%. We are confident that this year with your support and by working together, we can achieve our target attendance percentage of 96%. To keep you informed of our progress we will post our current percentage on our home page each week.
We have to inform you that Denbighshire County Council have a policy where school meals must be paid for in advance via Parent Pay. Meals cost £2.20 per day or £11.00 for the week. Sign up details are given to all parents on admission to school. Further information can be gained by contacting the school office on 01745 852782.
