Generally, the holiday dates announced at a council level don’t change very often. However, we encourage you to check back regularly for any amendments that may occur, and to consult the East Lothian Council website for their 2023-2024 approved calendar and 2024-2025 approved calendar. You may also wish to visit the East Lothian Council homepage to check for any urgent or last-minute updates that may not have been incorporated into the official calendars.
