If you or your child show any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not come to class even if feeling slightly unwell as children can present such mild symptoms and we want to protect all of our students , staff and families . Please email the School to let your teacher know at info@moragalexander.co.uk if your child will not be at class.

If your child starts to feel unwell at class with COVID symptoms they will be accompanied by a member of staff to sit in the Office and their parents phoned to collect them.

We keep clear registers and records of all students and visitors that enter the building. We will do our upmost to safeguard all our staff and students and work with the Scottish Government if Track and trace is required.
