Face Coverings in school

A huge thank you to all our young people this week who cooperated so well by adhering to the new guidelines requiring face coverings to be worn – a fantastic demonstration of our Respect value.  It is also great to see a growing number of re-useable face coverings, some very creative designs.

Please ensure absences are reported to the Office before 9.15am.

Senior Study

As per previous communications, S6 pupils who are studying at home in the morning (so not attending Registration, Period 1 etc.) MUST contact the School Office each day this applies to them otherwise a Groupcall message will be issued.

You may hand something in to office staff if urgent at the window, but you must not come through the second double doors. If you do have something to hand in to the school office, please ensure you stay behind the table so that social distancing can be maintained.
