JUNE NEWSLETTER & FURTHER UPDATE FROM NORTH LANARKSHIRE COUNCIL

Many thanks to everyone who managed to come along to school today to collect packs. During that period, the Deputy First Minister made some announcements in the Scottish Parliament.  The information within your packs remains unchanged, but please see the update below from North Lanarkshire Council.  You can come along tomorrow between 9am and 12noon if you still have a pack to collect.

“Today’s announcement from the Scottish Government outlines the plan to reopen all schools on a full time basis from August.

We are currently considering the practicalities and implications of this announcement and will await further clarification and guidance from government, particularly in relation to public health and scientific advice.

Our priority is the safety of our pupils and staff across our network of primary, secondary and ASN schools, as well as our early learning and childcare settings.

We understand that you will have questions, and as this news was only announced today, we will make further information available on how this impacts on our schools and facilities in the coming days.

We are preparing for pupils to return full-time to school on 12 August and we will be working closely with our schools and partners, including our early years and childcare provision to establish our plans, which we will communicate as soon as we are in a position to.”  (North Lanarkshire Council, 23rd June 2020, 5:07pm)

DOWNLOAD OUR JUNE NEWSLETTER BY CLICKING ON THE LINK BELOW.

In our Newsletter, we clearly say that we WILL be expecting the children to wear full school uniform in August.  Please note…

  • Ties are considered optional.  If your child is able to wear one, they should wear one.  It is your choice.
  • Short sleeved shirts would be preferable.  When we have such regular hand washing, the children can end up with soaked sleeves if they are long!  However – this is a parental choice.

Leavers’ Hoodies Update

There has been a slight delay with the suppliers, meaning these won’t be ready by Wednesday. They will likely be in by the end of the week. As soon as we have them, we will arrange a time for our P7s to come up to the school to collect them from their P7 teachers! Apologies!

P1 Transition

P1 Transition -Meet the Teacher

Please remember for those children who did not have a visit to school last week you have the opportunity to meet your teacher tomorrow Monday 22nd June between 10am and 11am and Tuesday 23rd June between 1pm and 2pm.
Please come on either of those days at a time which suits you.

Your teacher will be outside waiting to meet you. We can only invite one adult with each child to ensure social distancing. If the weather is not in our favour we will be under cover or, if safe to do so, may use the dining hall. Please follow the directions of our staff.

We look forward to seeing you this week and thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
