Christmas Newsletter

Merry Christmas!

All the staff at Tullos would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope that you are able to enjoy the holidays with your family and our children return to school on Thursday the 6th  January refreshed and enthusiastic to start a new term. 

Currently the Scottish Government guidance for our return is that we stick to our class bubbles and ensure all the mitigations we have in place are adhered to. This means that we will still have staggered start and finish times as well as break and lunches. No parents are allowed in the school and should social distance and mask up at the school gates. Pupils are not allowed to bring items from home and staff will continue to social distance and wear masks.

 I will keep you updated if there are any changes over the holidays.

We are sad to say goodbye to Miss Singer who will be taking up the role of Acting Head Teacher at Bramble Brae. We wish her all the very best.

In Miss Singer’s absence Miss Mackinlay will be overseeing the Nursery and P1 as well as Rooms 7, 9, 15 and 17.

Miss Morgan will be in charge of the P7s and Rooms 6, 8, 10, 16 and 18.
