We would like to ask all parents/carers to check their child/ren’s heads at least once a week. Parental vigilance plays a vital role in keeping the spread of this problem under control.
We no longer can send letters to particular classes where parents have made us aware of an outbreak but can only continue to remind parents to check their child’s hair on a regular basis. If going uncheck it can easily spread throughout the family, as well as children continuing to be re-infected in their particular class/ stage.
I know treatment can be expensive , especially if you need to treat the whole family but I believe if you register with a pharmacist you can be issued with the correct treatment free of charge but please check this with your own GP or pharmacist.
We are now in the process of delivering taster sessions for the NYCoS singing groups to all P3 classes (and some P5s). if you have not already had yours, you will be getting them soon!
I have had some enquiries from parents who say the link isn’t working in the email that has gone home and I am also finding some children haven’t had forms. Would it be possible to send this message out again to all parents? Thank you.
“Bookings for the National Youth Choir of Scotland Singing groups are now being taken. P3 children will have had or will be having a taster session in school. Please follow the link on the information leaflet that comes home to register BEFORE Tuesday 19th December, or click www.eastlothian.gov.uk/nycos
Choirs are open to all P3-P7 children. If you don’t have a leaflet, please click the link above for all information or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Children who are not registered by Dec 19th will need to call 0131 653 5252 in term time only or can try just turning up on the night. Choirs start back week beginning 8th January.”
Thanks all – we won’t turn anyone away who does just turn up to a group without having registered, but we’re trying to encourage registration in advance.

P5 have had another very busy week! We have been busy typing up our palm oil letters and sending these to companies through our school Google Mail accounts. We’ve also been creating 3D shapes from the nets of shapes. We designed our own Fairtrade chocolate boxes using these shapes. We also had our very own hockey tournament to put all the skills we have been developing into practice. We have also been busy baking, making toucan bookmarks, posters and lots more in preparation for our fundraiser for the Rainforest Alliance. We are so proud that we managed to raise over £200 pounds for this amazing cause. We would like to say thank you to all parents for donations of books, baking and money. We appreciate it all!
