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.

Schools remains closed Thursday 2nd & Friday 3rd Nov

Here’s the update from East Lothian Council

All East Lothian schools will remain closed to pupils for the rest of this week (Thursday 2 and Friday 3 December). Also information on refuse collections roads, sports centres, libraries and more…

The ELC website adds, “Due to the continuing severe weather conditions, it has been confirmed that ALL East Lothian schools will remain closed to pupils on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 December. The forecast for Wednesday night is for worsening weather conditions with snowfalls of between 5 and 10cm and falls of 20-30cm in some parts of the county.

Major efforts to open up safe access routes to schools will continue during the rest of the week. East Lothian Council appreciates that these closures are causing major inconvenience to parents and carers. However, every effort is being made to re-open schools in the face of unprecedented severe weather conditions and transport difficulties.”
