Buckie High School will be closed on Monday for safety reasons after the building was “damaged” during Storm Arwen.
Moray Council has announced the secondary school will remain shut to staff and pupils as workers carry out repairs to make the building safe again.
It is understood part of the roof of one of the building either came loose or was torn off during Friday’s strong winds with rain now dripping into the classrooms.
