V.E. Day – School’s will be closed 8th May 2020.
Letters were sent out recently advising parents and carers of outcome of consultation in November – regarding potential VE Day closure of schools on 8th May and updated list of holidays and in-service dates for this school year were also distributed.
Although feedback received through PPS Parent Council poll was not in favour of another day closure (permission for which had to be requested from ELC) the outcome generally across E. Lothian had been ‘overwhelmingly in favour’. (This was the only vote opened, in line with letter from Fiona Robertson, former Head of Education).
**This means that East Lothian’s education staff and children will not be in school on Monday 4th May or Friday 8th May.**
