Highland Council has provided an update on the number of cases and pupils self-isolating at the two high schools in Badenoch and Strathspey.
Both schools have been hit by outbreaks with the first of the reports cases last weekend.
A council spokesperson said: "There are eight confirmed cases of Covid-19 with 58 pupils self-isolating at Kingussie High and 14 confirmed cases with 81 self-isolating at Grantown Grammar School."
The whole of Grantown's senior year was sent home earlier this week to self-isolate until the end of this month as a safety precaution.
There was a record number of daily Covid cases in Scotland today as the number surged above 6,000 for the first ever time.
A total of 6,835 new cases were recorded - more than 1,800 above the previous highest tally.
This is the third time this week alone that a new record has been set with a surge in the number of cases amongst the 16-17 year-old age group.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon had said that the sharp rise is a 'cause for concern' - but the Scottish Government was not currently considering the introduction of a circuit breaker lockdown.
Hospitalisations remain at much lower levels compared to the start of the year thanks to the roll-out of the Covid vaccination programme.
