Emergency Snow Closure Procedure

As we move towards the winter months, and mindful of the potential for heavy snowfall to close the school whilst it is in session. A summary of the school's protocol for emergency closure is here.

In such a circumstance, the school will endeavour to do what it can to stay open; however, our first priority is always to maintain the health and safety of our students and staff.

Making this document available to parents / carers in advance of any adverse weather conditions keeps all of us in the loop regarding process and communication.

Kind regards,

Steve Mulcahy
