PARENTS and carers dropping children to schools in Ross-shire are being reminded to wear face coverings in line with official Covid-19 guidance.
The Scottish Government appeal has been shared by teachers at schools across the county as the region attempts to curb the virus and remain in the best possible position to bounce back.
South Lodge Primary's head teacher David Hayes-Macleod was amongst those issuing the appeal to parents this week.
The Invergordon primary head teacher posted: "You will have received a letter from myself on Seesaw regarding some important information regarding Covid and face coverings.
"Face coverings MUST be worn when dropping off and/or picking up children from the gates at school and nursery. This has come from the Scottish Government and was announced last week. Also, if any parent or carer has been asked to come into the grounds of the school, a covering must be worn also.
"I would like to thank you all in advance for your cooperation and understanding with this in order to keep everyone safe."
