It may only be the start of a new term, but South Lanarkshire Council have now confirmed local schools will close for 3 days next week.
All schools in South Lanarkshire will be closed to pupils on Tuesday 6 September, Wednesday 7 September and Thursday 8 September because of industrial action.
This includes all early years establishments and nursery classes, primary schools, ASN establishments and bases and secondary schools.
Teachers will provide appropriate tasks/activities for pupils to undertake at home using digital platforms, traditional approaches or a mixture of both.
SLC is making arrangements to help those families who are entitled to a free school meal. A free school meal payment of £7.50 will be made directly into bank accounts.
