    From Don Ledingham at 14:10pm Today

    Thank you for all your efforts to get into school today. 

     The weather forecast for East Lothian is for low temperatures and a possibility of light snow showers this afternoon and evening. Taking this into account and the progress made by our Roads team it has been decided to open all schools, in East Lothian tomorrow – Friday 8th January. 

     It is very important that as Council employees we all continue to make a significant effort to get to our place of work to serve our communities.  I would therefore ask you to make plans to manage the opening of your school tomorrow and notify all staff accordingly.  We will be publicising the opening of schools on the Council’s website this afternoon.Our colleagues in Transportation have assured me that all school car parks will be cleared again this evening and that salt/grit bins will be restocked in schools overnight.

    We are liaising with our home -to-school transport colleagues who will provide us with an update.  I will forward this information later this afternoon

    Innerwick School Closed Thursday 7th January

    The following has been issued by East Lothian Council

    All schools to remain closed on Thursday (7 January)

    All schools in East Lothian will remain closed to pupils on Thursday 7 January as the result of continuing severe weather conditions and the prospect of further snow predicted for the area this evening (Wednesday).

    The position will be reviewed again tomorrow afternoon, although the aim is that schools will re-open again on Friday 8 January. Further updates will appear on this website and on local radio.

    I was briefly at the school this morning and there is 6 inches of snow around the school and the play area is very dangerous. It is hoped we will be in a position to open on Friday morning. If you are a parent thereare good links for learning on the school site that could be used, If not then sledging is a really good option. I recommend Spott farm area, or Winterfield if you live in Dunbar.
