Families in Hull are being urged to continue to follow public health guidance as summer holidays begin.
More than 5,000 pupils have attended school each day through July, with 4,500 in primary schools on a daily basis, in keyworker bubbles, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, and 600 students attended secondary schools in Year 10.
Councillor Peter Clark, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for learning and skills, thanked families across the city for following public health guidance and asks them to continue to do so across summer.
He said: “Our pupils, parents and school staff have done an excellent job of adapting to the new normal and have helped the phased return of pupils to primary and secondary go so smoothly.
“While children enjoy the summer holiday break, I would like to emphasise how important it is to continue to follow the guidance around social distancing and wash hands regularly.
“If you or your child have any symptoms of coronavirus, self-isolate and book a test by calling 119 or visiting the NHS website. If everyone follows the guidelines, we will maintain a low infection rate in Hull and enable the city’s recovery and new sense of normal to progress.
“We now look forward to welcoming all pupils back to school in September.”
