Dear Parent/Carer,

First and foremost, on behalf of everyone at Chryston High School, we wish you and your family a very happy and healthy new year – all the very best for 2021.

Please click the links below to access two important documents, they have also been sent out to parents/carers via email.  The first being a letter about arrangements for the beginning of term from Monday 11th January and plans for digital learning. Almost all young people will learn from home. The second being our CHS Digital Learning (Version 1) document full of initial help and tips to support young people and families during these times.

Thanks as always for your ongoing support, understanding and patience as we work together to navigate through current circumstances.

Take care and stay safe – we will continue to communicate with you in due course.

As we approach the Christmas break, we thank you for all of your patience, support and understanding throughout the term.  Please find a link below to access the latest version of our school newsletter, December 2020 edition.  You will be able to read about a number of achievements and successes, proving how well our young people are doing amidst a number of ongoing challenges due to current circumstances.

Please also find a link to a letter from Mr. Derek Brown (NLC Executive Director, Education & Families) which includes important information regarding arrangements for January 2021 following recent Scottish Government announcements.  You should have received this letter already but it is attached again just to make sure that everyone has received it.  We will be in communication with all families again from the 6th January onwards.

The final link is the latest version of our family calendar for your information.

We realise that there will be many questions regards January 2021 and we look forward to communicating further with you following the holidays.

Face Coverings Update from Scottish Government

The Scottish Government has announced that from Monday November 2nd all S4-S6 pupils are required to wear face coverings in classrooms as well as corridors and communal areas. Please ensure your child has a face covering when coming to school and please discuss with them that these must now be worn in classes for S4-S6 young people. Your co-operation with this latest Scottish Government guidance for schools is appreciated.
