I hope that you have managed to enjoy some of the lovely sunny weather over the Easter break. I wanted to write to you to provide a further update as we begin the summer term. We are all really looking forward to welcoming all children and young people back to our schools full-time on 20 April 2021. With infection rates of Covid-19 continuing to fall nationally, the reopening of schools to all learners feels like a positive step for all of us.
While schools remain safe, Scottish Government guidance is clear that there are measures that must be in place to continue to suppress transmission of the virus. Many of these measures will be familiar to you and your child, especially for those learners who had already returned to school before Easter. Children who are shielding have been advised to stay at home until 26 April 2021.
