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 email@example.com

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.

After sharing lots of ideas and lots of deliberation the children decided to name our newspaper ‘The Stoneyhill Mini Mail’. This will share a collection of events, achievements and sporting news from across the school.
Look at the mind-map below to see some of the fantastic ideas they want to share with you.
