COVID-19 update at WHEC

Dear parent/carer,

In what has been an ‘eventful’ day, I wanted to update you on the current position of the school. Today we have had cases of staff and pupils who have tested positive or who have been deemed as ‘close contacts’ and are being told to self-isolate. The overall pupil attendance in school is 80%.

All pupil and staff contacts have been traced.  At the moment the school is deemed safe by NHS Lothian and the City of Edinburgh Council however I would ask that you continue to reinforce the key infection control messages –

  1. Wash your hands
  2. Wear your face covering

As always, help us all to stay safe.
