Unfortunately due to the Corona Virus COVID-19 outbreak the Government have made the decision to close all schools within Scotland as of Friday 20th March. This is something we as a school have never had to deal with and we do not know the full details of this yet so please bear with us. We will continue to update parents and carers as and when we have information on the situation.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Below is some important information regarding the day to day running of the school during the Corona Virus outbreak:
- Gorebridge Primary School is open as usual, and will remain so unless staffing becomes an issue or if there is a change to the Government Guidance.
- You as a parent make the decision about the welfare of your child. If your child has symptoms of a persistent dry cough or temperature they MUST NOT attend school. If you child has these symptoms it is advised that the whole family self isolate for 14 days.
- If you are worried about your child attending school because of underlying health conditions or are just concerned then please seek advice from the NHS Websites.
- You must inform the school office of your child’s absence.
- There will be NO HOT LUNCHES from Wednesday 18th March 2020 for the foreseeable future. There will only be soup and sandwiches available.
- There will be no GPS run after school clubs from Wednesday 18th March 2020.
- There are no Active School Clubs running as of Wednesday 18th March 2020 for the foreseeable future.
We will try our best to keep parents/carers updated with any information we have as and when we receive it.
