PARENTS of pupils in an Easter Ross town which saw one of its schools destroyed by fire earlier this year are set to be given a virtual update on plans for the future later this week.
Pupils at Park Primary in Invergordon were accommodated in classrooms at Invergordon Academy and South Lodge Primary following the February blaze, which has been linked to a laptop computer.
The school was successfully evacuated and no one was injured.
Highland Council will be holding a meeting for parents of schoolchildren currently attending Park, South Lodge and Invergordon Academy using Google Meet on Wednesday, July 1 at 7pm.
Parents at South Lodge interested in having questions answered are being asked to email them to Parent Council chairperson Mhairi Stirling on email@example.com by 3pm on Monday. Parents at Park are invited to submit any questions they might have to head teacher Karen Cox at Karen.Cox@highland.gov.uk
Schools are expected to return in the Highland Council area from August 12. Pupils have been taught remotely using online platforms including Google Classrooms since lockdown was announced back in March.
Cromarty Firth councillor Maxine Smith said the online meeting would discuss next steps after the fire. She said council officers will attempt to answer questions emailed in advance and hope to be able to take additional follow-up questions that might arise from answersprovided.
