Dear Parents and Carers, young people and families,
I cannot believe the end of session has arrived. It has certainly been a strange last term for everyone and we have all had to find new ways to work together and stay connected.
We are still waiting for the final decision about August but please be assured that we have plans, contingency plans and contingency contingency plans all worked out so that we can send you information as soon as we are advised by City of Edinburgh to do so. It is important to follow the guidance as we take the route map out of lockdown and listen to reports in the news and particularly check the CEC website.
A big thank you to all the staff at Royal Mile, school and Nursery, for their commitment and dedication to keeping everyone busy with great learning activities and some opportunities for fun!
Thank you to the office team, who have helped keep communication moving, delivered food parcels and ipads, queued at post offices and maintained a cheerful disposition!
Thank you to all the families at Royal Mile who have supported the school and helped their children to engage with learning. For all the email messages, blog comments and photographs that have made us smile and feel connected, thank you.
This evening I will be saying farewell to Primary 7 and wishing them all the best at High School, thanks to CYP and Zoom.
Then tomorrow I will be in school to finish off a few office jobs and take a last walk round. In August it will look very different without the scaffold and the builders.
In the meantime, please stay safe and well. Enjoy the sunshine and take care.
