Oban’s Park Primary School has been forced to close today (Friday August 20) due to a burst water pipe.
The school’s water supply has been cut off to allow Scottish Water to fix the main. Parents have been contacted to pick up their children.
‘Park Primary School needs to close,’ said the primary school, which has more than 250 pupils, in an emergency announcement on its Facebook page at 11am on Friday.
‘There is a burst pipe outside the school grounds in Dunollie and Scottish Water have turned off the water supply to the school. This will be off for at least two hours.
‘Therefore parents and carers must make arrangements to collect their children as soon as possible. Please be aware the work is happening outside the school gates so no parking is available. Parents should park elsewhere and walk to the front door of the school and we will send your child out to you.
‘Alternatively, you may drive onto school grounds and wait in your car at the path leading up the main door. Staff will bring your child to you.’
