Update on School and Early Years Closure 17.12.20 at 5pm

Further to today’s temporary closure of the school, I can advise that all P1-P7 classes and our Butterfly Room (3-5 year olds which some parents call the Big Room), WILL RETURN TOMORROW, Friday 18 December.

Some further works are required within the Caterpillar Room (2 – 3 year olds which some parents call the Wee Room) and this will remain CLOSED ON FRIDAY 18 AND MONDAY 21 DECEMBER. We will be in touch with parents/carers of this group of children to advise them accordingly as soon as we have further information.  Sincere apologies.  Your support in this is much appreciated.

FLU Vaccinations

Message from Dr Nicola Steedman, Interim Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Scottish Government

If someone develops fever post vaccination, this should usually resolve within 48 hours. This is a relatively common, expected reaction, and self-isolation and testing for COVID-19 are not required unless COVID is suspected based on other clinical criteria such as cough and/or anosmia.

 If fever persists beyond 48 hours or an individual develops other COVID-19 related symptoms, then they should self-isolate and be recommended to have a test for COVID-19. Testing for COVID-19 may also be considered at any time following clinical assessment, or if there are other epidemiological indications such as being a close contact of a case or part of a cluster.”
