COVID-19 Reopening of Menstrie Primary School Information March 2021
We are very excited to be welcoming all of our children back to school, full time on Monday 15th March. While this is a very welcome announcement, we must remember that Covid 19 still remains prevalent in Forth Valley and must continue to ensure that government advice and guidance is being followed. Most of the procedures and protocols in place before the Christmas Holiday will continue.
Primary 1 & 2 will start the day at 8.55 and will finish at 2.55. Primary 3 – 7 should arrive at school between 9.00 and 9.10 and will finish at 3.00. We ask that families stick as closely to the times indicated to help stagger the start and finish times thus lowering the number of children arriving at once. Primary 3 will continue to be picked up from the field as has already been happening.
As before, we welcome children wearing uniform however this is not compulsory. We only ask that the clothes worn are suitable for school and the weather. We still ask that the children wear clothes suitable for P.E. on P.E. days. These days will be the same as they were before Christmas. Please also remember that the windows in school are kept open for ventilation, so a sweater or jumper is advisable.
To reduce the risk of Coronavirus spread, a detailed school risk assessment has been completed and a copy is available to view below. This is a working document and subject to change and will develop as the situation changes and new scientific advice is published.
