Start date: 25/01/2021 (Monday)
End date: 25/01/2021 (Monday)
Closure type: Weather related
Comments: It is with regret that we have decided to close. As you know, I ALWAYS stay open in the snow unless it’s exceptional but, as we can’t move staff or put bubbles together due to Covid, we are in a tricky position. As the forecast is a continued snow fall and a freeze overnight, and with so many staff and families who live rurally we felt it prudent to tell families now so they had time to make plans. At least remote teaching can continue. Staff will share with you the plan for the day.
