School closures

Schools closing before children go to school

If the weather forecast remains on red alert schools may have to close. A decision will be made at around 6am, however, if conditions are not certain, the decision may be delayed until 7am or as late as 8am.

Schools closing whilst children are at school

If weather conditions are forecast to deteriorate during the day - while schools are in session - the school bus service may run earlier.

As soon as a decision has been made, schools will be told by email and phone.

Pre-agreed transport arrangements

If school buses are cancelled, the school will follow your pre-agreed plan. A record of your pre-agreed transport plan are kept by the school, and you should have chosen one of the following for your child:

  • remain at school until collected
  • make his or her own way home (when appropriate)
  • walk to a pre-agreed location (eg your workplace)

School work online

When schools are closed, students can access generic tasks and / or their usual work online.
