As you will be aware, the First Minister has announced that East Lothian will move in to COVID-19 protection level 2 from Tuesday 24th November 2020. Parents and carers will recall that protection level 3 had additional enhanced protective measures. These included the need for all staff and pupils to wear a face covering during lessons in the senior phase. In addition, there was also the need for parents and carers to discuss with their clinician whether children with the highest clinical risk should still attend school. Full details available in letter issued 18 November from Lesley Brown, Chief Operating Officer (Education).
