Wick High School has issued a recommendation for its pupils to bring protective face coverings to school as its stock of masks is running low.
In a bulletin issued today it said: "We have been hugely pleased to see that, since it became mandatory, so many of our young people have brought and worn a face covering while in school."
It said that on the odd occasion when a pupil had forgotten to bring one it had "been happy to provide a replacement for them from the school stocks".
The message continued: "However, now we are facing shortages in availability of disposable masks and, as a result, are not always in a position to be able to offer one to pupils who need them.
"Please can we ask that pupils come prepared with their own face covering whenever possible to avoid the unpleasant situation of them not having one or not being able to get one from school staff."
The school went on to thank parents and pupils for their continued support in "these difficult times".
