In the event of school closure there are a number of systems in place to ensure parents are informed as quickly as possible.
If school will not be opening for any reason including loss of power or weather related incidents, the 'snow tree' will be started. This is when a number of parents are contacted who have volunteered to pass on messages to more families. If you are not contacted by the snow tree or by text message from school then always assume that school is open.
In the event of school closure, school will contact the bus companies to cancel transport.
