A group of Aberdeenshire youngsters have been told to stay at home from school following a high number of Covid cases.
New Pitsligo and St John’s School has announced a partial closure for pupils due to staff absences and a “high number of Covid” cases.
Pupils in the Primary 5/6 class alongside those in Primary 6/7 have been asked to “work from home” today.
The Aberdeenshire Council website explained: “As a result of staff isolating and the high numbers of Covid in Primary 5/6 and Primary 6/7, both of these classes are being asked to work from home today.
“We appreciate your support with this matter.”
Meanwhile, pupils in Primary 1-4 and those in ECL classes can attend school as normal if they are experiencing no Covid symptoms.
