Update from the Headteacher re Contact Tracing

Dear Parent/Carer,

I am contacting you today regarding the procedures that will be put in place for any possible contact tracing that may need to take place at the start of the school holidays in response to the identification of positive cases of Covid-19.  I have attached a letter from Midlothian Council to explain the procedures that will be used.

I understand that some parents/carers will be keeping their young person at home on Monday and Tuesday to reduce the number of contacts in the period leading up to Christmas Day in a bid to protect others in the family.  Please let the school know if you intend to do this and we will amend the register accordingly.

I will issue my last weekly newsletter of 2020 on Friday as normal.

Thank you in advance of your support,

Mrs Dobson
