Adverse Weather Information

During the dark winter days, we encourage pupils to put safety first.  This includes dressing appropriately so that they can be seen at all times and to wear appropriate outerwear/footwear for the weather conditions.  Pupils have been reminded about the procedures to follow in the event of wintry weather, please discuss these arrangements with your son/daughter including if the school were to close during the day.  If unable to get into school, pupils should work through the materials appropriate to them as instructed by their class teachers.  Information about changes to school bus routes or school closures will be posted on the Aberdeenshire Council website and on the school infoline.

Communication with Parents

Parents – frustrated when letters from school go missing?

Now is the time to get involved in shaping the future of communication with schools. Aberdeenshire Council is rolling out a new service to communicate with parents by email, text message and a new app for smartphones and tablets.

A parents’ survey is available that will directly influence how the school uses the new messaging service – you can complete it at the following link; https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/AberdeenshireSchools

This improved system will allow us to send home newsletters, certificates and other communication electronically, saving the school money currently spent on text message and printed newsletters.

We are scheduled to begin using this technology hopefully next year and are seeking parents’ views on what they want to receive, delivery methods and how often they want to hear from the school.

Please note, telephone and letter communication will still be used for communication that is of a sensitive or confidential nature.

 Further information is available by visiting http://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/schools/parents-carers/school-communications/

Communication for parents

Aberdeenshire council has changed the way parents receive online alerts about school closures and changes to school transport. You can now sign up for these notifications through myaccount on the Aberdeenshire Council website – if you currently pay for school meals online, you will already be registered.

 myaccount is a simple, secure way of accessing a range of Scottish public services using just one username and password and 13,000 parents across Aberdeenshire are already enjoying the benefits of it.

As well as being able to sign up for alerts, your home page will automatically give you handy information such as your bin collection days, where your nearest recycling centre is and the names of your local councillors.

So, if you want to be kept up-to-date and take advantage of the other myaccount benefits, sign up to the new system by going to the Aberdeenshire Council website and clicking on the red register button in the top right-hand corner.

Help and more information for parents and staff on myaccount can be found here http://bit.ly/shiremyaccount
