Flooding - Road Closures

The school will not be closed during the course of the day unless a MAJOR unexpected event occurs and jeopardises children’s safety.  Children are not generally sent home early, unless absolutely necessary.  They may, however, be taken home at any time at parents’ discretion.  In the event that a closure occurs during school hours, parents will be contacted via SMS in the first instance, so again it is essential that you immediately notify the office of any changes to your contact details.

In most instances, if it is deemed unsafe for children to attend, school will be closed prior to 8.30am and advice will be broadcast on local radio stations, advised via SMS and the school’s Facebook page.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT SOME LOCAL BUS COMPANIES WILL NO LONGER TAKE CHILDREN HOME DURING THE COURSE OF THE DAY IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY OR SEVERE WEATHER EVENT.  IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PARENTS, AT THEIR DISCRETION, TO COLLECT CHILDREN FROM SCHOOL IF THEY DEEM IN NECESSARY IN THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL SITUATION.

If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact the school office.
