We have 17 teaching staff missing and 3+ support staff (1 IT Tech). The principal, vice principal and one assistant principal are all stuck. Both head and deputy of sixth form missing (one in Oz, other in Brazil).
Some staff are already saying it will be at least a week before they get back.
Took on 7 cover staff today. Also had my media Tech poached for cover (he's doing GTP from Sept) which means I'm down to just 2 out of 5 staff.
Kids have started to take advantage already .......

I can't wait to ask them, "did you have a nice break?"

Couldn't agree more with that one, we are 2 teachers down with a due date of after the bank holiday weekend (so that's early May), heads PA and Site Manager so not too bad thankfully!

Some of our kids are from Hong Kong; Cathay Pacific have advised that the earliest flight they can expect to get on is 7th May. These kids will have oral exams starting next week, and the 1st Physics paper is 11th May. Ohhh dear...

I imagine the big independents will be amongst the worst hit for this... all those international boarding pupils who went home for the long Easter holiday and wealthier parents who fly off to Dubai for the break. It seems very quiet round Tonbridge School this week
