Dear Parents and Carers
Following the sad news of Her Majesty’s death City of Edinburgh Council has taken the decision that Broughton High School will need to close on Tuesday 13 September at 12 noon (and buildings must be clear of staff and pupils by 12:30 pm to allow them to get home safely). This is due to the route taken by the Queen’s Coffin which will involve numerous road closures across the city early in the afternoon.
All main contacts of pupils and staff should have received a SEEMiS text on Sunday 11 September advising you of this information. It will also be published on the Council website.

Some young people may feel the need to talk to someone trusted about their emotions at this time. Our school chaplain, the Reverend George Vidits, minister of St Stephen’s Comely Bank Church, has offered his support. Please contact your child’s guidance teacher if you feel this would be of help to them.
