Online Payments

Elgin High School are now starting to make greater use of the IpayImpact system (currently this is only used for paying school meals online).  This system will now also be used for the collection of our practical subject recoveries for 2019/2020, which includes Art, Home Economics, Technical, Graphic Communication and Woodwork.  Please be advised that the school will be making a concerted effort to discourage cash and/or cheque payments in favour of the online system for these charges, therefore if you have not already registered for an online account we would strongly suggest that you do so now, as moving forward, there is potential for the school to add other events e.g. school trips to this method of payment.

A copy of the ipayimpact instruction letter can be found below.

COVID-19 Information to Date (06-03-2020)

Dear parent / carer,

In line with the advice issued by the NHS and Scottish Government I provide you with a link to information which will allow us to take all the precautions we can at this moment in relation to the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19

There is also a video on YouTube for you to view:

As a school we are operating as normal although we have been provided with specific advice to share with parents, carers, staff and students. The key messages are as follows:

There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

- Washing your hands often - with soap and water, or use alcohol based hand sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport.

- covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin.

- People who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or early learning and childcare setting

- Children, pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:

-  before leaving home

-  on arrival at school/setting

-  after using the toilet

-  after breaks and sporting activities

-  before food preparation

-  before eating any food, including snacks

-  before leaving school/setting

-  Use an alcohol based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available

-  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

-  Avoid close contact with people who are unwell

-  Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

-  If you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child or colleague, please call your GP or NHS24 (111). Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment but phone.

-  see further information on HPS COVID-19 website and NHS Inform

Face masks for the general public, pupils or students, or staff are not recommended to protect from infection, as there is no evidence of benefit from their use outside healthcare environments.

This situation is likely to continue to change regularly over the coming days and weeks and I will keep you informed accordingly.

If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact the school.

Thank you

Hugh McCulloch

Statement for School Websites/Social Media re SQA Exams

We know that there are many questions emerging about SQA exams and this is an anxious time for young people and families. 

The SQA are considering all options in line with advice from NHS and Scottish Government and will put plans in place as necessary; this will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

At present there is no change to the published National Qualifications examination timetable and schools and young people should continue to prepare as normal.

All current deadlines for coursework and other assessments remain in place and the exam timetable remains scheduled to run from 27 April until 4 June 2020.

We will continue to keep you updated as further information emerges.
