I hope that you and the family have had a positive day overall.
Today I would like to share some information with you that I have received from Midlothian Council regarding supports for families at this challenging time. The local authority recognises the additional pressures that families are under at present and has collated an information document detailing the supports that are available locally – please see above.
A few members of staff have suggested that the school could be supporting our pupils even more by supplying stationery packs containing items such as jotters, paper, pencils and pens. It may be difficult for families to currently access such resources that are important for learning to continue. Please let me know by email if you would like us to arrange this for you and we work towards doing this for the start of the new term. I will consider the logistics of distributing the packs to families when I have an idea of the quantities involved.
Again, I would like to thank you for your continued support.
