CLASS SPLIT LISTS FOR 2021
Per regulation, our school may only run at 50% capacity to help comply with social distancing rules. Each class has been split into a BLUE group and a YELLOW group; each group will attend school bi-weekly (every second week). Class split lists indicating which group your child is in will be sent to you by your child's class teacher.
If your child was in TKPS in 2020 they will likely remain in the same group this year but parents are requested to please check the 2021 class lists to make sure which group their child is in. These lists will be shared with you in due course.
New learners have been allocated into a colour - this will be shared with you in due course.
TEACHING CALENDAR FOR 2021
As mentioned above, learners will attend school on a rotational basis: one week the blue group, one week the yellow group. The calendar below indicates when each group will be attending school.
Revised 2021 school calendar (still to be published)

In light of the rotational basis in which learners will attend school (see COP), learning will still be supported online to accommodate for the weeks when your child is not at school. See below:
1) Class Dojo - this remains the school's primary form of communication. If you are not registered on Class Dojo, please contact your child's class teacher.
To download Class Dojo, click here.
2) Google Drive - this platform is being used to distribute work during the national lockdown. Access to the drive will be provided by your child's class teacher via Class Dojo.
Watch this short video to see how it works:
3) Our Download-and-Go facility is operational. We understand that data is costly and so to assist we invite parents to access the google drive and download schoolwork by parking on our top field and making use of the school's network. This service will be available between 7am and 10am Monday - Friday. Strict safety protocols are in place. Please read more about this in the EOP.
