Free School Meals
Midlothian Council have now set up a BACS payment for all Secondary pupils S1-S6 entitled to FSM, households where there are Secondary age children and younger siblings will receive payments for all children. However families with children only in Primary schools will not receive the payment but will continue to receive food.
This will be processed as a 4 week period direct to families, the first run will be from Monday 6th April to Friday 1st May and then processed in subsequent 4 week periods. The first payment will be in parents accounts on 9/4/20.
If you have not received your payment please contact your School in the first instance who will be able to offer assistance.
Below is a link to a site for support with accessing online/ distance learning. There are video clips and guides to help you access Glow and Google Classroom. This is a great resource and will provide a lot of support.
Last week we were asked to gather numbers of families who did not have access to a laptop at home. The information gathered previously has been used to calculate the number of devices required. Families now need to fill in a form, found via the link below (under the tab Chromebooks Loan). This will then register you for access to a device. It will give you instructions about collecting your device.
Any questions please get in touch.
