Winter 2019/20 Respiratory Illness
You will probably be aware that we have had a number of respiratory outbreaks in school.
The main symptoms being reported include:
Fever, Cough, Sore throat, muscle aches, sore tummy, cold/flu like symptoms and headaches.
Respiratory viruses are spread by breathing in droplets produced when a person coughs or sneezes.
The risk of catching this can be reduced by:
- Washing hands frequently
- Keep children at home until 48 hours after symptoms cease
- Regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces and communal toys
- Using a disposable paper tissue, disposed off immediately after use
The above information was produced by Lothian NHS Board.
Many thanks to all who contributed to and attended the Christmas Fayre. We made the magnificent sum of £582.05.
Children in Need
Many thanks to children and parents for raising £46.40 for Children in Need.
Thank you to all parents and grandparents who attend our ‘Harry Potter’ Open Evening.
We hope that you enjoyed seeing the ICT skills that the children achieved along with their literacy work and portraits!
P1 Enrolment for August 2020
If you have not enrolled your child for P1 in August 2020 please contact the school to arrange an appointment. Thank you.
Fantastic news. We have just received our 3rd Green Flag. Well done to Mrs Beveridge and all the children for their hard work. Look out for our lovely new flag on our flagpole.
ParentPay – Our New Online School Payment Service
ParentPay is an online payment system for schools. It allows parents to pay quickly and securely for school meals, milk, trips and much more.
I’m delighted to inform you that our school will go-live with ParentPay on 19th March 2018.
The system is easy-to-use and offers parents and carers the freedom to make online payments by credit or debit card, whenever and wherever they like, 24/7.
What parents and carers can do now
- If you haven’t already, please create an account with our Midlothian Council website where you can also find out more about ParentPay
Parents and carers will be sent individual letters detailing the account activation procedure nearer the time and user guides will be available online.
We will of course continue to accept cash and cheque payments as necessary but we do hope that parents will use the new online facility. Less time spent in school on cash handling means more time is available to support the smooth running of the school.
