In the event that the school has to be closed because of bad weather, parents will be informed as follows:

  • Text message to parents’ mobile phones
  • Notice on the school’s web site
  • Messages on the local radio stations
  • Inclusion in the closed schools list on the Argus website

We will use the same systems to notify parents of continuing closure and of the date of reopening.

Should the school have to close during a school day due to worsening weather conditions, the text messaging service will be used to inform parents. For students’ safety, they will not be released to go home unless parents have given permission to do so.
