Introducing www.myon.co.uk

myON is essentially an online library which has some additional tools. It will be the main source of reading material for home and school use.

myON is from Renaissance Learning, the same company that provides Accelerated Reader, a program that has been used in school for a number of years. myON has some integration with Accelerated Reader and Star Reading which is used to help select books at an appropriate level.

Please take some time to look at the Parent Information Sheet and the introductory video. Please take some time to connect Star Reader Scores.

It would also be useful to download the App and set up access on as many devices as possible to ensure easy access.

During the next week or two, it would be really helpful if everyone becomes familiar with the books that are available. Begin to read some books and start to add to the “list” of books you would like to read.

Try the audio function with some books and try just reading others and see your time spent reading add up. Take some quizzes!

Integrate myON into your daily routine!

Enjoy!

New orders for embroidered garments will now be dispatched within 3-5 working days. So if parents need to order more uniform, they can now do so with delivery within a week*.Find more info online here

Common Cold and COVID-19 Symptoms

Professor Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director
E: HealthConditionCovidEnquiries@gov.scot

To Parents / Carers


31 August 2020
Common Cold and COVID-19 Symptoms
I understand these last few months have often been challenging, particularly for parents and carers. Now that schools and nurseries have returned I am writing to provide some advice where a child or young person in your care presents with symptoms of the common cold or similar bugs during this pandemic.
Following the return of schools after a prolonged break, it is common for colds and similar viral infections to circulate. In many cases, children will be well enough to attend school and continue their learning with little or no interruption to their education. In other cases, for instance where they have quite a heavy cold, they may need to take a day or two off to recover.
This is not the case for children and young people with potential COVID-19 symptoms, they are required to self-isolate and seek a test through nhsinform.scot or by calling 0800 028 2816.
In order to ensure your children do not miss out on their education, it is important to be clear about how COVID-19 symptoms differ from those of other infections that we normally see circulating at this time of year.
COVID-19 Symptoms
It is important that all of us – including those who make up the community around a school – are vigilant for the symptoms of COVID-19 and understand what actions we should take if someone develops them, either at school or at home.
The main symptoms to be aware of are:
 new continuous cough
 fever/high temperature
 loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste
