Hundreds of pupils were sent home from school yesterday due to problems with the water supply at a new £47million pound academy.
The problem at Lochside Academy emerged after parents had dropped off their children at the facility in the Cove area of Aberdeen.
When senior staff realised there were problems with the system they decided to shut the school and send children home until repairs were carried out.
The city council confirmed that pupils left the school on buses provided by the local authority.
An Aberdeen City Council spokesman said: “Arrangements were made with First Bus for additional buses to be provided, to collect pupils living in Torry and Kincorth to take them home.”

The school – now the largest in the city – was built as a replacement for Torry and Kincorth academies and opened its doors last August.
The school houses a 25m swimming pool, dance studio and sports pitches.
Parents initially raised concerns about the quality of walking routes to the facility amid fears children would be in danger.
However, a council report later confirmed there had been no road safety incidents around the new Lochside Academy since it opened.
Earlier this year it emerged that police with sniffer dogs were targeting pupils standing at bus stops in a bid to stamp out problems with illegal drugs.
The patrols were believed to have been launched on the back of concerns raised by residents about antisocial behaviour in the area.
They took place on the first week of the new term at the end of the Christmas holidays. No drugs were recovered during the operation.
The school revealed on social media that the building would be open to pupils again today.
The post stated: “The school will be open as normal Tuesday morning.”
