The caption on the social networks website checked out: “Miss Reid is that you? It looks a lot like her.”

She was appropriately suspended on complete spend for 18 months and Dumfries and Galloway Council have actually now verified that she has actually left her position at the school, although it is uncertain whether she has actually been sacked or entrusted a pay-off.

The daddy of the student who shot the video informed the Scottish Mail on Sunday at the time: “My child was actually surprised to see her headteacher there.

“I heard her say, ‘It's Miss Reid! What is she doing here?'.

    The airport sighting followed moms and dads were consistently motivated not to take their kids out of school throughout term time.

    One disappointed moms and dad at the time stated: “It appears it's one guideline for some and one for others.

    Reid's position in the school was taken control of by acting head Jamie Farquhar, who is still in the function.

    The Daily Mail reports that the council spokesperson stated: “The acting headteacher continues to offer management and management to the school with a concentrate on the requirements of students.
