    Hi guys.

    My daughter has come into contact with someone who has Covid-19 and has to self isolate for ten days although has no symptoms herself.

    My son still needs to go to school which means she will be there when I drop off / pick up as I have no one email to watch her.

    Ive emailed the school twice but they have just ignored me.

    What are the rules around these kinds of things? Can I still take her with me when I drop him off / pick him up? Its all socially distanced anyway I’m just worried my ex will use this against me in our upcoming custody case.

    It’s crazy isn’t it! Our school had this equally crazy rule that said that if a parent had to self-isolate, the kid still needed to come into school. So I asked how would I bring my son to school if I’m self-isolating? The answer was “I know, it doesn’t make sense! Just wear a mask”. Not exactly the same in your case, but yes what else can you do?! Could you leave her with your ex for the whole of her self-isolation period? Or can you just call them if they are not answering emails.

    Just take your daughter to school as normal and social distance away from everyone . You have emailed twice and they have blanked you and like you say your daughter has no symptoms herself

    The lack of symptoms means nothing unfortunately. She could still be a carrier and infect someone at school. Could she stay in the car while you drop your son off?

    You either leave your house or you dont con1.  the school ignored mums emails which is happening up and down the country. Her daughter wasnt actually tested positive so u just apply common sense in that school expect her son there regardless. mum simply drops son off and stays 2 meters away from all parents with her daughter who probably hasnt got covid anyway !!

    No offence intended. self isolating means not to leave house . it dont mean stay in car . anyway if daughter had it then surely mum dropping off is likely to have it too. Common sense is the only way stay over 2 meters away from everyone where u can .

    That’s what I was saying too, that daughter needs to self-isolate (i.e. stay at home) but son needs to go to school (i.e. leave the house) and dad needs to figure out what to do. Trying to minimise the damage by having daughter stay in the car, as no symptoms today doesn’t necessarily mean no Covid nor no symptoms tomorrow.

    They are split up and she is worried that dad is going to hear about whats going on. All she can do is social distance and do drop offs as school not responded.  If you are meant to self isolate u cant even leave house , so being in car same as being outside school gates from everyone.

    Basically mum and dad dont get on great so he need not know as self isolation period soon be over and lockdown lifted for this month thank goodness/

     

    Also please note con1 they are going through family court proceedings where she is concerned about if ex finds out it will be used against her. It wont as school ignored emails on more than one occasion so she was obligated to take daughter to school with son present socially distancing from everyone
