Important Update - COVID-19

Message from Tricia Gallagher Headteacher and NHS Lothian (08.11.2020)

We are aware of a recent confirmed case of COVID-19 within The James Young High School community. We understand that this is a worrying time but would like to reassure you that we are working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.

A number of people are currently being contacted because they may have been in close and sustained contact with the recent case and will need to self isolate.They will be given appropriate guidance and advice.

If you are not contacted directly to tell you your child is a close contact, then your child should attend school as normal.

Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance. The school is safe and remains open.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.

Please do not send your child to school if they have symptoms of coronavirus under any circumstances.

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.

Best wishes,

Tricia Gallagher
