MMU – 6th December

Head Teacher Return

It is nice to return to work following ankle surgery, thank you to all the Senior Leadership Team for the work they carried out in my absence.  I have certainly missed a very busy couple of weeks with the storm closure and the impact this has had across our community.  I hope everybody is safe and well, with all power restored and minimal damage.


Prelim examinations are underway and will continue until Monday 20th December.

Covid 19

Covid cases are increasing, all pupils and parents/carers must ensure the following:

  • Regular lateral flow testing
  • Hand washing/sanitising
  • Wearing a face covering

If you or your child develop a new continuous cough, or high temperature, or a loss of/ change in sense of taste or smell, your child must not come to school. The symptomatic person should arrange a PCR test as soon as possible, and the whole household should stay at home until the test result comes back.

  • S4-6 Tracking Report – week commencing Monday 17th January (moved forward from Friday 28th January)

Storm Arwen

Aberdeenshire Council are keen to know what kind of support our communities may require from us in the coming days and weeks.  This may no longer be the provision of food/meals now that power has been fully restored, but people may require a different kind of support.  If you have any local intelligence as to what may be required – no matter how trivial it may appear to be – please email (FAO Head Teacher) by Wednesday of this week and I will forward this information on to the central team.
