Commenting on today’s announcement from the Scottish Government that schools will return full-time in August, without distancing, if Scotland continues to make progress on suppressing the coronavirus – Angela Constance MSP for Almond Valley said:
“Thanks to the united effort of people here in West Lothian, and across Scotland, who have stuck to government advice we have now made significant progress in the fight against COVID-19.
“I’m absolutely delighted by today’s announcement that if we stay on the right path, and continue to suppress this virus, our young people can return to school full time from August.
“This is an important step not only in ensuring our young people get the education they deserve, but it’s also positive news for working families, my own included!
“I want to send my gratitude to our amazing teachers and school staff across West Lothian who have helped us get to this stage.
“There’s a lot of work ahead of us, but I am pleased the Scottish Government is working hard to support families and communities across the country.”
