A reminder of our severe weather policy: https://www.edubuzz.org/dunbargrammar/parental-information/severe-weather-info/

Thank you for checking the severe weather policy, websites and Twitter.  These tools have proved invaluable over the last few days in terms of keeping communication going. Hopefully students have been given enough work on Show my Homework to keep them learning. On Wednesday and Thursday, a total of 407 home learning tasks were set for students on show My Homework. We hope our senior students are on track for their SQA exams. Teachers will be checking how students have got on when they return to school.
