Due to new Coronavirus (Covid 19) Stay at Home restrictions, only children of key workers will return the week of 5 January, as originally planned, with others taking part in remote learning from 11 January until 1 February. This will be reviewed again in mid-January.
The change will apply to all pupils - except vulnerable children, and children of key workers. And it includes nursery schools, as well as primary and secondary schools.
Further information on re-opening arrangements is available on the Scottish Government website.
The news that schools and nurseries are reopening might bring about a mix of feelings for you and your wee ones.
