One of the strath's largest primary schools has reopened today after two days lost to Covid.

Grantown Primary School was closed for the two previous days because of staff absences in connection with the virus

Whilst the classrooms have re-opened, pupils in P6 and P6/7 have been told they should continue to isolate until parents are notified of results following Health and Protect's investigation into cases.

The school had been closed on Tuesday and yesterday due to rising cases of Covid-19 in the school.

Some staff needed to go for a PCR test and this left the school too short-staffed to remain open.

Headteacher Kip Clark said on Monday when announcing the enforced short closure: "I am sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused some parents but we have no choice but to follow public health advice for the protection of everyone."
