As you are aware the entrance to the new Greenfaulds High School is situated off the A73. We appreciate that pedestrian access to the school is limited but hope this will dramatically improve with the completion of the second phase scheduled for August.
Whilst it is convenient for some parents to pick up and drop off pupils in the vicinity of Scott Drive there has been a number of safety concerns raised due to the high volume of pupils and traffic in this area.
We would encourage and appreciate if parents could use the A73 access as the segregated bus bays and drop off points provide a safe and controlled environment particularly at the start and end of the day.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
An Open Evening for pupils currently in P7 (and their families) will be held in Greenfaulds High School at 7.00pm on the evening of Thursday 17th November.
This is an informal event and there is no need to inform the school in advance that you are coming. Pupils and their parents will “follow a timetable” which will allow you to see around the school and meet teachers and pupils. You will find out about the curriculum and about the many other activities on offer to pupils.
Car parking will be available but the school is likely to be very busy on the evening so you are advised to come early.
I look forward to seeing you on the 17th November but please do not hesitate to contact me in advance if you have specific queries or requirements.
