Longniddry Buses

We have been made aware today of some problems with East Lothian Council’s Longniddry bus routes into school.

We have been in close contact with East Lothian Council, and it would seem that this has been caused by students catching buses not allocated to them.  We understand that a letter from East Lothian Council over the summer break detailed the year groups assigned to each of two buses, and that detail is summarised below.

Should any Longniddry families not have received that letter – and we understand that has been the case in some circumstances – then the detail below shares all that was contained within it.

We are confident that students catching the correct bus tomorrow will resolve the situation.

I am very sorry that young people and their families have been inconvenienced in this way, and do please contact our school office if there are any further problems. Although we do not organise the bus service, we are keen to play an active role in the resolution of any difficulties.
