COVID-19 Time Capsule

Please see link below for printable ‘COVID-19 Time Capsule’ resource.  We thought this a very good resource for Pupils during these challenging and difficult times.

COVID-19 Time Capsule

Please note this was sourced externally as shared on various social media platforms and is not the work of MPS.

As we move into the second week of schools being closed, teachers will be sharing distant learning tasks for your children to undertake through Seesaw. Seesaw allows children to share their learning with their teacher and receive feedback and guidance regarding next steps.

This is a new way of working for all of us and we ask families to be mindful that staff may have their own personal circumstances to accommodate during this uncertain time, become ill, or are even working on the frontline in the hubs, teaching children whose parents are category 1 service providers.

Please be reassured that where possible, staff will be online at various times throughout the week (Monday to Friday) to answer any home learning questions and provide learners with feedback regarding their work.


Please be aware that there will be no online learning set for the Easter holidays and teachers will not be communicating online during the Easter holidays either.

We will resume online learning on 20th April 2020.

Thanks so much for your support.

As a further update to Distance Learning, a new Parent/Carer Portal has now been published.

This portal also contains a form to register to request loan of a Midlothian-owned device for the period of closure, if required for distance learning.

Speech & Language

Dear Parents/Carers,

Usual Speech & Language clinic services are likely to be disrupted in light of the current health situation but they are planning to do what they can to offer continued support to children and families with communication needs.

Their website, Let’s Talk and their NHS Lothian SLT Facebook page will be updated with regular posts with guidance on supporting children’s speech, language and communication needs. Also, you can call their helpline using the attached information.
