Parents and Carers
The South Lanarkshire Parent Focus Group are hosting an event which aims to explore the rights and responsibilities of a Parent Council. The event will be held in the Corporate Dining Room on Thursday, 15 March from 18.30. This is a follow-up to the event held in November where parents asked for more information on the role of the Parent Council. I have attached a copy of the feedback from the last event on the Parent and Staff Group page.
Parent council members and the wider parent forum are welcome to attend.

Schools Update - adverse weather (19.01.18)
Following the latest advice from the Met Office, as a precautionary measure, it has been decided that all South Lanarkshire schools will close from 1pm today. Please could you make arrangements for your child to be picked up from school at this time. Children will still receive their lunch at school and all children will be dismissed from the dinner hall entrance at 1pm. Thank you for your continued cooperation during this difficult time of adverse weather. (added 19.01.18)
Please share as widely with parents and carers as we have tried to send out text messages but due to the heavy volume of use across the authority it appears that some texts are not being received.
Please also note that the P4 Enrolment Mass on Monday 22nd at 6.30pm for children making their First Holy Communion in Our Lady of Lourdes has been postponed and we will notify parents and carers when a new date has been set.
Schools Update - adverse weather (17.01.18)
Employees have been working hard to make sure services can still be delivered, despite the weather, and that is very much appreciated.
Following on from yesterday’s Weather Warning, a further Amber Alert for snow has been issued for tonight from 9.00pm to 5.00am. You will have seen in the news some of the travel difficulties experienced so if you must travel over that period it would be sensible to be prepared.
Following an assessment of the adverse weather conditions today and the Amber weather warning for snow between 9pm tonight and 5am in areas of South Lanarkshire as well as the road conditions a decision has been taken to close all Clydesdale schools. At the moment all other schools are expected to open tomorrow but please continue to check school websites and council sites to check for up to date information.
We will have a late opening of 10am this morning (17.01.18)
Schools update - adverse weather (16.01.18)
