East Lothian Council are working closely with providers who transport pupils from more isolated rural areas to and from our schools. There are a small number of services in rural areas which will either not run or be disrupted due to road conditions.
There will be NO bus services to Yester Primary School (Route 118,119 & 120). The 121 – which serves both Yester Primary School and Knox Academy will NOT be running.
Road conditions are improving. Please call or check with transport provider websites for further updates.
Sunday, 4 March @ 3.30pm update from Prentice school bus service is that the Garvald and Morham buses will NOT run for Yester Primary or Knox Academy.
“The schools’ normal advice applies. If buses aren’t running then it is the parents’ choice whether to drive them there but also their responsibility to pick them up at the end of the school day. The roads are accessible with care, but certainly not suitable for buses. There are long sections with snow banked up either side and no passing places if you meet oncoming traffic. Schools are open but please use common sense when making your decision about whether or not you take your children to school” Prentice Coaches.
As we missed the opportunity to celebrate World Book Day because of the school’s closure, we are planning to do it on Thursday, 8 March. Children are welcome to dress as their favourite book character on the day.
