Are you a parent or carer who has questions about the impact Coronavirus may have on your family?
If so, Parent Club Scotland have developed some information on protecting yourself and others and guidance on what to do if staying home with children. You can read more on their website, here.
Parents and carers may also like to know that BBC Scotland are now providing extra educational content for children to help them learn at home while the schools are closed.
BBC Bitesize content, specifically for pupils studying in Scotland, will be shown on the BBC Scotland channel and will also be available through BBC Bitesize.
As we all know, schools across the country are closing today and are not expected to re-open before the summer holidays.
We would like to wish all the pupils who are finishing school today the best of luck in the coming weeks and months whether they are competing coursework for national qualifications; leaving school to move into training, education or employment; or completing their learning before moving up an academic year and in some cases onto secondary school.
