Forthill Primary in Broughty Ferry has been affected by a nearby burst main.
The school’s water supply has been cut off due to the issue.
In an e-mail, head teacher Alison Macgregor said the primary had to close due to the problems affecting toilets and sinks.
Parents were asked to pick up their children “as soon as possible”.
