Letter to Parents/Carers – 29th January 2021
I hope you are all well. I have a few things I would like to share as we come to the end of another week.
I attend a weekly head teacher drop-in session with colleagues from Health Protection Scotland. They were able to share that the current lockdown restrictions are beginning to bring the number of cases down within the NHS Grampian area. Positive daily cases have dropped by about a third which is positive news. It is good to know that all of our hard work as a community is making a difference. 😊
They also shared that NHS Grampian are in the top 3 of health boards when it comes to administering the vaccine.
I hope you managed to join in some of the Burns Day fun on Monday. We have had some really positive feedback so thank you for sharing that with us.
We have additional Chromebooks being delivered to pupils to support online access so please let the school know if you do not have a device for your child and we will do our best to remedy that.
The First Minister will be reviewing restrictions on Tuesday 2nd February. I hope to be able to update in my email next week.
The parental monthly newsletter from the Education Service will also be coming out via groupcall today as well as being uploaded on to our website.
Please keep a look out for pictures of Andy Gerrie whose wife Ann is an EYP. He raised £440 by shaving his beard, eyebrows and head to help raise funds for the school. Very brave Andy and a big thank you.
I hope the weather improves for the weekend and you are able to get some fresh air.
Please take care and stay safe.
