Return to School Arrangements and Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the important arrangements that parents and pupils should be aware of as we return to school.

The school building will open to pupils from 8.30 each day. Pupils will not be admitted before this time.  

(The ASN transport entrance will be open to pupils as they arrive but parents are encouraged to drop pupils off no earlier than 8.30)

School hours remain 8.45-3.35 Monday to Thursday and 8.45-1.10 on a Friday. Pupils in Block A last period will be dismissed 5 minutes early each day to aid the flow of pupils out of the building.

We have also included links to 2 documents from South Lanarkshire Council – a Frequently Asked Questions document and a letter about mainstream school transport.
