Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils of Craigroyston,
As the session draws to a close, I would like to thank you for all your support this year, especially over the last four months. Our school and community have come together during a time that has brought us great challenges and difficult situations. Whilst there have been many negative aspects of lockdown, it has also brought positives: it has given us the opportunity to help one another, to connect more and to understand that whilst education is very important, a school is so much more than that – it’s about taking care of each other and supporting each other in both the good and the bad times.
As we look towards August, there is still some uncertainty about what our pupils return to school will look like. Last night, the CEC confirmed that all pupils will return to school on Wednesday 12th August unless we hear anything to the contrary. Should anything change, we will return to our first plan of young people attending on specific days. Please ensure that your child comes to school on their allocated days – I have written this in a separate letter which is also included. The main thing is that we make sure our pupils and staff have access to a safe and clean learning environment. Throughout summer I will keep you updated so that you know exactly what to expect for our return in August. I am sorry that I cannot give you a definitive plan – things are still continuing to change.
We are very excited about everyone returning to school and welcoming our new S1s in August. I look forward to us all being together again as the Craigroyston family!
Until then, I hope that you and your family have a lovely summer and that everyone stays safe and healthy.
Take care and stay safe!
