A huge thanks to everyone who contributed to this afternoon's smooth running early closure. Thank you to staff who have been travelling from afar this week under difficult weather conditions to ensure a normal start to the day for our pupils this week. Huge thanks to parents/carers for their vigilence, patience and support this week and while collecting pupils from school today. Our emergency closure information (see website) remains in place. In the event of an emergency closure we have a facility to contact parents via text in the first instance however due to a high level of network activity, please note some texts may take longer to arrive. In adverse weather circumstances, SLC and school twitter pages will be updated as well as the school website and Parent Council facebook page. We hope that everyone has a lovely weekend and look forward to seeing everyone on Monday.

Wednesday 17th January update

Thank you to parents/carers for your support today and to our staff for making it in to school, many under treacherous road conditions. We have been experiencing problems with our phone line today.

Again, we expect the school to be open as normal but as always keep an eye on the SLC website and twitter feed (as well as our own) for updates. If your child will be absent from school tomorrow please either leave us a voicemail on 0141 6341916 (if we are up and running) or e-mail on  office@burnside-pri.s-lanark.sch.uk
