School bus pick-ups update

School buses are now running as normal although we’re reminding families living in Danderhall and Loanhead their child’s pick up point may be different this week. See below for more details.

If you need to get in touch

While all letters about operators and pick up points were issued to the parents or carers of entitled pupils last week, we are aware some of these letters did not arrive in time for Monday’s start to the school term. Apologies for that. If you have still not received your letter then please call us on 0131 561 5453 or email [email protected]

Danderhall pick ups

If your normal pick-up point for the school bus is either the Co-op or library, Danderhall, please go to main bus stop on A7 main road during the week of Mon 20 August. This is for one week only while Newton Church Road is closed.

Loanhead pick ups

If your usual pick up is at the Mayshade Road bus stop or Straiton Retail Park, then please go to the Edgefield Road junction for 8am for the remainder of the week.  This is the bus stop heading towards the main Loanhead crossroads. Buses will pick up pupils attending either Beeslack or Lasswade high schools from this stop. This is for one week only from Monday 20 August because of roadworks. Many thanks for your patience.

Non entitled pupils

As soon as we are satisfied that all the entitled pupils have been accommodated then non-entitled pupils will be allocated seats on a school bus if there is availability. We will be contacting those families as soon as possible.
