Morning, everyone. There has been no news coming out over the weekend about staff updates, nursery hours and updates for how nursery will look.
As soon as I know anything I will pass on. This is always an anxious time for parents and young people as it’s around change: change of class, teacher and perhaps classmates. We appreciate that it is good to be able to guide you and your child as much as possible through change and transition. All I can ask you to do is to remain calm when discussing changes with your child and reassure that their teachers and school staff are working really hard to make it easy and safe for them to come back to school in August. As you reassure them, please be reassured yourself.
All we know is that it will continue to be blended learning i.e. some time in school, some time at home. This will continue to be disruptive to you, we appreciate but we mustn’t take chances with this virus. I suggest getting in touch with your employer about how best you can go back to work, if that is a concern and please wait until our final plans have been accepted by Highland Council.
Again, with a fortnight to go it is very last minute but I can assure you that we are doing all we can with the knowledge that we have.
Here is tonight’s video link for anyone who missed last Thursday’s meeting. There will be no different news so if you attended on Thursday, please leave the spaces for others.
We have been promised nursery/ELC news today so we will go ahead with tomorrow night’s video meeting for nursery parents. The video link will be available tomorrow. Meanwhile, have fun with this nursery activity using ice cubes!
Have a good week,
Aileen Mackay, HT
