Highland school closures
A number of Highland schools are closed today, ahead of the planned national shutdown.
Local schools currently closed or partially closed today are:
Charleston Academy (open to S4-6 only)
Drakies Primary and Nursery
St Clement's School and Nursery
Strathdearn Primary and Nursery
Glen Urquhart High School
Alness Academy (open to S4-6 only)
Rosebank Primary Nursery
Yesterday Inverness Royal Academy also said it would be open to S4-6 pupils only.
It was confirmed earlier this week that all schools in Scotland are set to close from the end of today for an indefinite period.
Yesterday Education Secretary John Swinney confirmed that no school exams will take place this year but that free school meals will continue to be provided throughout the shutdown.
Highland Council is expected to provide details of what provisions it will be making throughout the shutdown period shortly.
