Wednesday 28th – SCHOOL CLOSED

School is CLOSED today due to further falls of snow overnight.

Please watch website for updates about re-opening, and stay safe.

Wednesday – possible weather impact


A decision will be made by 7:30am Wednesday morning on whether the school will open – this will depend on snowfall overnight and conditions in the morning. The website will be updated and a text will be sent to parents.

As of now, we have not been made aware of any school bus cancellations, but are monitoring the situation.

Irrespective of whether or not the school opens, in the interest of Heath & Safety, parents should use their own judgement on whether to send children to school, based on their opinion of conditions in their area.
