I am sure that you were as pleased as I was to hear the news of the move to Tier 2 for Midlothian Council. This is due to a collective effort having been made by all in the local authority, with the safety measures in schools contributing greatly to this. This now means that pupils in the senior phase (S4-6) no longer will be required to wear face coverings when in classes. Pupils can, of course, continue to wear face coverings and I would encourage them to do so to ensure that levels of transmission of the virus remain at manageable levels.
It is still a requirement for all pupils to wear face coverings when in corridors, school buses and in certain classes where it is more difficult for physical distancing to take place.
I hope that you will take the time to read the weekly newsletter to find out what has been happening in school and as a very brief summary of other news that may be of interest to you.
