There has been extensive damage to the Assembly Hall roof overnight as a result of high winds. The roof needs to be made safe to ensure that debris does not cause injury. It is not practicable to re-route pupils and staff due to the high volume of traffic. As a result, the school is to close for the day to allow contractors to render the area safe. Please listen to Radio Forth in the morning. There will be a message if the school is not to re-open. Assume business as usual otherwise.
