Pupils and staff at Westhill Academy are being sent home at 2.30pm due to poor conditions in the area.
The local authority announced on their website: “Due to current and forecast inclement weather, and the continued poor condition of the roads and pathways leading to/from the school grounds, Westhill Academy will close to staff and pupils at 2.30pm today, which affects only afternoon break and the final period of the day. This is to allow everyone to journey home safely in daylight.”
Meiklemill School in Ellon is also closing at 2.30pm due to “horrendously dangerous ice around the school and surrounding area”.
And Ellon Primary School was closed to everyone earlier this morning as the conditions around the school are “treacherous, cars are stuck and the conditions are not safe”.
