Emergency Closure Information

The following information is a guide to parents on how to gain information about the ‘open/closed’ status of the school during severe weather conditions.  Due to severe weather conditions the school may not open. To gain information about the current situation parents can do the following

  • Phone the Highland Council Snow Information Line. Each school will have a special pin number; this will give parents information about the situation regarding their school.

Telephone number: 0800 564 2272

Deshar pin number: 1860

  • Listen to BBC Radio Highland or Moray Firth Radio who broadcast school closures during their morning shows. Local radio stations issue news and weather bulletins on traffic conditions and school closures. Transmissions may not cover all households and may be subject to re-scheduling but should be helpful. Parents are advised to remain “tuned in” to ongoing road weather, or school information updates.
