COVID-19 Update

17 March 2020 | Tagged: Senior School, Junior School, School Community

The High School of Glasgow is following advice from the Scottish Government and Health Protection Scotland. We will continue to review our position to minimise the risk of COVID-19 to our community and ask that all pupils and visitors to The High School of Glasgow support us by following NHS guidelines.

--------------------

KEY WORKER CARE

In line with the current COVID-19 advice, we have now closed the reception at the Senior School - Therefore, no phone calls will be answered.

Key Worker childcare has now been moved to the Junior School and any phone calls regarding this service should be directed there on 0141 942 0158.

School email accounts continue to be monitored during this time so should be used for all other correspondence:

General Senior School - admin@hsog.co.uk
General Junior School - adminjs@hsog.co.uk

 

COMMUNICATIONS

As we are all aware, we are in a constantly changing and evolving situation. We would ask you to continue to work with us as we seek to address matters as we receive further official advice.

We will keep you updated regularly regarding our current arrangements or should we receive any further official guidance. We remain in contact with the Scottish Council for Independent Schools and closely monitor daily the Health Protection Scotland and Scottish Government information. Our recent communications to parents can be found below:

LETTER FROM THE RECTOR: FRIDAY 3 APRIL - SQA Update

LETTER FROM THE RECTOR: THURSDAY 19 MARCH - Scottish Government Announcement and SQA Exams

LEARNING FROM HOME

Contingency measures are in place to maintain teaching and learning online during the duration of school closure. We have also been providing further training to staff to support.

Junior School parents will be familiar with use of the SeeSaw app and the Junior School will make increased use in the event of closure. Each class teacher will add a 'Home Learning Activities' section on your child's SeeSaw page and this will be updated on a daily basis. This will provide parents with activities to work on at home if your child is absent from school.

For the Senior School, pupils should already be aware of how to access online departmental resources to support their learning. Teaching staff have reminded pupils of such provision this week.
