Please remember that today is a dress down day for our children to mark the end of term and have some fun together. There will be Easter activities and crafts.

Please see below the most recent guidance from Highland Council regarding the Coronavirus as well as the new Coronavirus advice poster.
Staff, students and pupils who have returned from Category 1 risk areas for COVID-19
within the last 14 days should self-isolate, and NOT attend education or work for 14
days, even if they feel well. You can find information about affected areas on the HPS
Staff, students and pupils who think they have been in contact with someone infected
with coronavirus should NOT attend education even if they are well, but should first
contact their GP or NHS24 (111) for further assessment and advice.
A reminder that next week is World Book Day and we are really excited about it! Our theme this year is Journeys and we are inviting everyone to come to school ‘dressed for travel’ on the day. Pupils will explore travel in lots of different ways – personal journeys, travel adventures and challenging migrations.
Please contact your child’s class teacher directly if you can spare any time at all to come in on Thursday and share a favourite story with the class. We would love to have you in with us on the day.
Also we will have a fab World Book day menu on Thursday…
The planned menu for Thursday (roast pork & gravy, cottage pie, cheese sandwich, fruit crumble and custard) will be for lunch on Tuesday instead.
Let’s celebrate a love of reading together this year with World Book Day 2020’s challenge to share a million stories!…
