Winter Weather Plan Update
Now that Winter has officially begun I would like all families to note carefully the arrangements we have in place in the event of it being necessary to close the school due to bad weather. The school will only be closed if we deem that the conditions at the school, or the conditions in the general area, are so severe as to compromise the health and safety of pupils, parents and the school staff.
- Any decision to close the school will be made between 7:30/7:45a.m..
- A text message will be issued to all families and to the bus companies between 7:45/8a.m.. Are you on the texting service? Please note the instructions above or check with Pearl at the office.
- An announcement will be made on Highland Radio on a rolling basis from 7:50a.m..
- All families will be kept informed by text message during any closure.
- We would ask families not to telephone the school as it merely blocks the telephone lines and restricts our ability to make essential calls.
In the event of any prolonged period of bad weather which may necessitate the closure of the school for any considerable time, the Easter Break may be reduced by up to three days by the school remaining open up to and including the Wednesday immediately preceding the Easter weekend i.e. Monday 25th to Wednesday 27th March inclusive.
REMEMBER…..(1) Wait for the text message !
(2) Listen to Highland Radio !
(3) Do not telephone the school as it blocks up the school lines !
