After the Easter Holidays, East Lothian Council are going to be able to accept online payments for trips, milk monies, uniforms, camp money etc. These payments will be accepted through the East Lothian Council Pay for it webpage.
Parents and carers can continue to pay using cash or cheque if they prefer. This website can be used for everything except school lunches.
A letter was sent out this week with all relevant information on it. Should you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Please find attached the Primary School online payments live link
Autumn-Winter Menu 2013-14
Please find attached the Autumn Winter Menu for the pupils of St Martin’s. This menu will be displayed in all classes for the children to refer to as well as receiving a copy to take home.
It is important that your child knows whether they are having a packed lunch from home OR whether they wish to have a school dinner. Having a dialogue with your child the night before school or before school in the morning is important so that they can make that informed choice with you and know what they have got to look forward to.
We shall be continuing with the ‘Lunch Band System’ and it is your child’s responsibility to ensure they take their band in the morning at register time and that they keep them on their wrist throughout the morning. Teacher’s will remind children to collect their bands first thing in the morning.
Our Winter options are:
Blue – Meat option
Green – Vegetarian option
Yellow – Baked Potato
* Please note that there is no longer a ‘Salad Option’ (Orange Band) as we are entering the Winter months. Your child will however still be able to have salad with their main option or hot vegetables if they would prefer.
There is also the possibility of having a ‘Sandwich Friday’ for your child. If you wish a packed lunch to be made up for your child on a Friday, please send the lunch money in with your child and that can be provided for them.
Good afternoon to everyone! Hope you are all keeping safe and warm.
We are aiming to re-open St. Martin’s school and nursery in line with East Lothian Council’s recent post on their website. Please view this for an overall picture of East Lothian circumstances and safety guidance.
With particular reference to St. Martin’s circumstances we are pleased to say that, weather permitting, we will be re-opened for the full day. School meals will be provided as normal although there are changes to the menu (see below for more details)
The P4 and P5 trip to the Pantomime at the Brunton Theatre is due to go ahead provided that the bus company risk assessment is safe. After speaking to the bus company director we are optimistic that if weather conditions do not deteriorate the trip will go ahead.
In terms of access to the school on Monday morning pupils will only access the main gate and main door to the school as the rest of the playground may not be accessible. Nursery pupils will access their normal door. The gate at the back of the school will remain closed. Class teachers will be responsible for supervising pupils on their departure from school.
The Christmas Dinner scheduled for the 8th December will now take place on the 14th December.
All of these arrangements are subject to change depending on weather conditions deteriorating severely. Please continue to check the website for further information.
Thank you for your co-operation during these challenging times. We are really looking forward to the children returning to school and making preparations for Christmas.
Keep safe and warm this weekend!
Changes to Menu
Monday – Roast Beef or Macaroni
Tuesday – Fish fingers or Tomato pasta
Wednesday – Chicken pieces or Cheese salad
Thursday – Haggis, veg Haggis or Lasagne
