Alfredton Primary School will close for deep cleaning today following a reported case of COVID-19.
The school will be closed to all pupils and staff for 24 hours for a deep clean as a precautionary measure.
The school sent an email out to parents on Tuesday night, notifying them of Wednesday's closure.
The email did not say if the suspected case was from a pupil or staff.
Any pupils or staff who have been at the school have been told to stay home while contact tracing occurs.
Although schools have returned to remote learning, there have still been some pupils attending as not all parents are always able to home school.
