A Caerphilly comprehensive school has been closed until further notice after a structural report revealed the building contains asbestos.
Further investigations are to be carried at Cwmcarn High School in the Ebbw Valley.
Caerphilly council does not yet have a plan for accommodating more than 900 pupils from the school elsewhere.
It said they are working on alternatives and will update parents next week.
The local authority said the decision to shut the premises was taken for the safety of staff and pupils.
It said updates would also be posted on the council's website.
