Return to School

Hello everyone

I hope you are all enjoying the summer holidays and are well.  All of us  are looking forward to welcoming P2-7 back to school and welcoming our new P1s to Cockenzie Primary.  An important letter has been emailed to you all today regarding next week, along with key information regarding what to bring/what not to bring to school.

Our priority is the safe return for all our children and staff and I for one, am so excited to see everyone next week.

Enjoy the rest of the holidays.

*Free School Meals Update from East Lothian Council*

Dear Parents and Carers,
From Wednesday 1st April 2020, all children registered for and requesting Free School Meals provision for the current period of COVID-19 School Closures will be provided with a Weekly Lunch Pack. These lunch packs will be delivered to the home address of registered pupils. Parents who had previously arranged to collect Free School Meal entitlement from Children’s Hubs will have their Weekly Lunch Packs delivered to their registered home address instead. Free School Meals registered children who access emergency childcare at one of our Children’s Hubs will continue to be provided for there.
 Easter Holiday Period – Free School Meals
Weekly Lunch Packs will continue to be delivered to registered pupil’s home addresses until further notice, including the planned Easter Holiday for schools.
Those children who are registered for Free School Meals and have been accessing a Children’s Hub Childcare place in response to their additional support needs, will have a Weekly Lunch Pack delivered to their home address for the Easter holiday period. Provision will then revert back to the Children’s Hub from Tuesday 21st April 2020.
