Fraserburgh Academy is closing at 12 today, Friday January 8, due to the adverse weather conditions, as well as a partial closure for pupils at Fraserburgh North School.

An Aberdeenshire Council spokesperson said: “Due to the deteriorating road conditions caused by adverse weather we have had to send many staff home, therefore the school will close for all at 12 noon Friday 8th Jan.”

Fraserburgh North School is partially closed, to ‘allow staff to travel home safely in daylight’ the spokesperson added.

They said: “The school will be closing at lunchtime. Pupils who are having a school dinner should be collected at 1.30pm.

“Pupils having a packed lunch or home dinner should be collected at 12.30pm. All parents should report to the school office and the nursery session will not run this afternoon.”
