Chrome books

Any P6 or 7 pupil who does not have their chrome book at home can arrange to collect it from their classroom today between 3.30-4.30pm. If any P5 pupil from Mrs Mackenzie’s class does not have access to a device which can connect to the internet please could they contact her as soon as possible.

Latest update

I am sure you will be aware that the first minister announced earlier today that all Scottish schools will be closing on Friday. We will be issued with further guidance from the Highland Council tomorrow which I will share with you as soon as I can. We appreciate this is a very uncertain and fast changing time for everyone but we will endeavour to support our young people as best we can. As always we appreciate your patience and support, especially in times like these. Please bear with us as we work out our next steps. Take care.

Google Classroom

Some of the teachers have been busy setting up google classrooms for pupils. Mrs Mackenzie has asked that all her pupils who are absent at the moment login to Gsuite to access their gmail accounts to accept the invitation to join their classroom. All pupils have a login which follows the pattern of forename.surname@charlestonacademy.org.uk – passwords have been set to Password for the first login. If any pupil in P5/6 has an issue and can’t login please could parents leave a message on the absence line – 784910- so we can rectify this. Gsuite can be accessed through google on any device which is connected to the internet. Thank you.

Wow

Declan was an absolute superstar with his number work today! He completed his work in 4 minutes and wrote his numbers beautifully! Amazing work.

No water fountains

Please note we are not allowing the pupils to use water fountains at the moment. Please ensure your child comes to school with a bottle of water to drink throughout the day.
