On its website, the council said: “School meals will be available, however the menu may be different from that advertised on Parentpay on Monday.

“Staff who have difficulties getting to their base educational establishments should aim to attend their nearest Edinburgh school following the snow schools protocol. To ease transport and parking issues, staff are asked where possible to consider using public transport.”
