Please see below statement from Lesley Brown regarding the school closure as of Friday 20th March 2020.
Families with a child born between 1 March 2017 and 28 February 2018 are being encouraged to enrol their child in nursery before 6 March 2020 for 2020/21.
Older children, or those who have not yet registered for an early learning and childcare place, should also register by this date.
To register for a place:
• Visit www.eastlothian.gov.uk/nurseryenrolment and find out about the different options available in council nursery settings from August 2020.
• Download a nursery registration form from the website.
• Complete the form and take it to your preferred (first) choice nursery. You should also take your child’s birth certificate.
• If you are choosing a blend of more than one provider, apply to your council nursery first and then speak to your funded provider – private nursery, childminder or community group – about what hours you would like from them.
• Make sure your application is in before 6 March 2020. Applications will still be accepted after this date, but they will not be considered in the first allocation process. Please get in touch with the Early Years and Childcare team if you have any questions or you can’t register by 6 March 2020.

Rise in Asthma Attacks
Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?
Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital.
Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.
Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.
Nominate your school for an entry in the prize draw to win £5,000. The more nominations your school has, the more chances of your school winning, so pass the details on to parents and your community. Schools from Glasgow and Dundee have won so why not East Lothian! More details including a poster and entry forms are available from the website at https://www.nationalbooktokens.com/schools
The closing date is the 31st July 2019.
