PARENTS at a Ross-shire school are being asked to avoid gathering close to the primary in line with coronavirus social distancing guidelines.
The issue was raised by parents themselves at a Tarradale Primary School parent council meeting, which was staged online.
It was flagged that some are "very worried about the amount of parents lingering around the lollipop hut".
The school said afterwards: "It goes against all social distancing rules and is making people feel uncomfortable passing. Please do not stop here. Move in and stand with plenty space for people to pass."
It said it was an "easy fix" and noted that there are four pick-up points and that playground rules apply nationwide and that "all parents are asking is to be mindful and respectful of others".
A number of schools in Ross-shire have made similar requests in recent months.
In a separate development, Highland Council earlier this week confirmed three pupils at Beauly Primary School had tested positive for coronavirus.
Two composite primary classes – P2/3 and P3/4 – were closed due to a number of pupils and teaching staff identified as close contacts of three positive cases within the pupils.
