As you may already know, we are aware of a person(s) in the school who has tested positive for COVID-19. We have been working closelywith NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.  

Person(s) have now been contacted because they have been in close and sustained contact with the case and the tracking process is now complete.  These contacts will need to self-isolate and appropriate guidance and advice has been given. 

If you have not been contacted and your child remains well, you should continue to follow the school’s existing arrangements for your child.

Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance. The school is safe and remains open. 

Please note, we are now advising anyone who is identified as a close contact to go for a COVID-19 PCR test as soon as they are able to, even if they do not have symptoms (anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days should not take part in this testing if they currently do not have any symptoms). This is to help identify any further cases quickly and to prevent any potential spread of the virus. However, please note that a negative test result does not shorten the length of your child’s isolation period.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website www.nhsinform.scot  or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.
