School Opening Monday 6th December

Following advice from East Lothian Council, we are planning to open for all pupils on Monday 6th December.  Efforts have been made to clear safe routes to school but we would recommend walking where possible, taking care due to icy pavements.  If you have young children, or have concerns about their safety, make sure you accompany them on their walk to school as we cannot guarantee that school crossing supervisors will be on duty in all areas.

Although The Glebe and school car park have been cleared, the playground is still under a lot of snow so we would recommend that pupils don’t arrive before 8.45am.

Please ensure that pupils are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions and please provide them with a plastic bag (preferrably labelled) to put wellies, gloves, scarf etc. in.

If there are any changes we will update you over the weekend.  For more information see the East Lothian Council website.

Information on school openings for Monday 29 November

This update is taken for the East Lothian Council website. You can check for any updates here.

“Parents and carers are advised that headteachers will make the decision as to whether they believe their schools can open depending on the weather conditions in the area. This will be done as early as possible tomorrow morning, and each morning thereafter.

At this stage, all schools are set to open on Monday, 29 November as normal, though parents and children are asked to be careful given likely underfoot conditions.

Any school closure announcement will be added to this website and published through other local media, including Radio Forth, as soon as possible. Schools will also publish information on their own websites.”
