Mr. Matthew Read
Welcome back to the new school year.
I am delighted to be part of the warm and vibrant community that is Prospect and to work with Staff, Students, Parents, PTA, and the Prospect Community to ensure this is the 'best school in the whole wide world'.
Prospect Primary School, in the Cayman Islands, is committed to developing inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring students, through the use of a child-centered, integrated curriculum, which fosters international tolerance.
Working in partnership with parents, staff, and the community, the school will produce disciplined, competent, technologically proficient life-long learners, who will embrace all cultures and make positive contributions to the global society.
The impact of COVID-19 and the subsequent closer of schools in response came as an unwelcome interruption to life for all of us. But as we look to return to school it is worth reflecting that the inconvenience and hard work undertaken to keep education going remotely through March, May, and June was worthwhile to keep these islands safe.
In opening up, we have to ensure that the sacrifices we have all made during the time of 'Shelter in Place' are not jeopardized and so as a community, we have to make a range of adjustments and put in place precautions to:
The wearing of masks will be an expectation. Under CIG guidance wearing a mask is required for students aged six years and older while indoors.
We are asking that each student has two masks, one they wear, and a spare in their bag.
While we would encourage the wearing of plain coloured masks we are not mandating this, nor are we insisting on any particular make or brand. However, parents/guardians should be advised that no Ski mask, head covering, etc. will be permitted.
