The current weather forecast indicates we should be able to open the school on Monday morning (December 6). If we are unable to open the school due to adverse conditions or safety concerns, we will endeavour to announce this as early as possible on Sunday evening. Please check this website, and Radio Forth for updates. Please also note updates on school transport as explained below.
Although we are making every effort to return our school to normal service as soon as possible, this will inevitably take time. We ask that you are patient and co-operate with us as we work to achieve this. Please also consider the safety guidance below before making a journey to school.
We will attempt to provide school meals, we advise you to provide their child with a packed lunch if normal school meal arrangements cannot be provided.
We regret that school transport will inevitably be badly disrupted on Monday by the ongoing weather and travel conditions. East Lothian Council will provide further updates on its website as soon as possible.
Safety and travel advice
Given the volume of snow and ice and current driving conditions, we ask parents to avoid driving their child to school wherever possible. Despite our efforts to clear snow and ice to open up safe routes to school, pavements in many areas are still in a very poor condition. Please dress your children appropriately for the weather conditions and make sure that you and your children take extreme care when walking to school. If you have young children, or have concerns about your child’s safety, make sure you accompany them on their walk to school.
