ARRANGEMENTS FOR RE-OPENING OF KNOX ACADEMY: AUGUST 2020

I hope you have had a lovely summer break.  Further to the letter sent by our Chief Operating Officer, Lesley Brown on Friday 31 July 2020, I am pleased to be able to write to you today to advise you on the plans for re-opening Knox Academy.

Over the summer, extensive planning has taken place to ensure we have a safe and supportive return to school.  The First Minister outlined in her statement to Parliament on Thursday 30 July 2020, that there is flexibility to phase pupils back to school. It has been agreed that all East Lothian Secondary Schools will have a phased return to school, over the course of the 12, 13 and 14 August 2020. All pupils will be back in school full time from Monday 17 August 2020.
