Mrs Gillanders was disappointed to discover that some children at Lochend Campus appear to be moving scooters around to hide them. She spoke to all the classes today to remind pupils that they should not be moving anyone else’s property without their permission.
We want to make sure this does not happen again. You can help by speaking to your child and reminding them that this is against school rules. If they see anyone attempting to move someone else’s scooter they should tell a member of staff as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

East Lothian Council’s Museums have lots happening in the run up to Christmas and families can join in from the start of December.
From 1st until 12th December, families can find the figures from the 12 Days of Christmas hidden around the John Gray Centre (Haddington) and John Muir’s Birthplace (Dunbar).
Children who find a figure can post it into the Christmas postbox to be entered into a prize draw. There will also be daily prizes for people finding the characters.
Please see http://edubuzz.org/museums/2013/11/27/christmas-comes-to-our-museums/ for more information on the activites around East Lothian.
Children have to make their way into the school building on both sites this morning due to the severe weather. The school is open as normal. Children will remain safe indoors during break and lunch today unless the weather subsides.
Thank you to Community Windpower for their donation of two Christmas trees for the dining hall at both campuses. They look wonderful!
This information has been reposted from the East Lothian Council website. Parents of children who travel to school alone walking, scooting or particularly cycling are advised that the conditions may be challenging from about 7am onwards. We will do our best to minimise any risk to children once they are in the school grounds and buildings. All East Lothian Schools are open as normal on Thursday 6th December.
The Met Office have issued an amber weather warning with high winds and increased risk of flooding from 2am to 4pm on Thursday.
Westerly gales are expected on Thursday, with widespread gusts expected to reach 80 mph in the Lothians and Borders. Please be prepared for the potential for significant disruption, particularly during the morning rush hour when there will also be heavy rain
The public are being asked to use sensible precaution if travelling or out and about and also to ensure any objects which could become loose and cause injury or damage are made secure.
Coastal / Tidal Flood Risk
There is a medium likelihood of significant impacts during Thursday afternoon for south east coastal areas giving a MEDIUM flood risk. Gale force winds and large waves are expected to affect the east coast of Scotland during Thursday. A large surge is also expected during high water on Thursday afternoon. This is likely to result in some significant coastal flooding of properties and parts of communities within the Firth of Forth, East Lothian and Scottish Borders coast.
The Council is preparing for the possibility of coastal flooding and will be monitoring the situation overnight and throughout tomorrow.
