With the local roads quite treacherous, (two of our parents have already had car crashes due to weather conditions this week) and the latest forecast expecting more extreme weather including snow, high winds and very low temperatures for today and tomorrow, I have made to decision to close preschool today in the interests of safety of the staff and families.
As much as the snow is not currently too thick, it is forecast to snow all day, and we have to consider families travelling later and children getting home.
Please rest assured this decision is not made lightly, and involves our staffing, ratio’s and statutory requirements around this.
This closure will probably continue on into tomorrow, but I will confirm this.
Please only make essential journeys and stay safe.
