Tuesday

Dear Families,

Staff who live locally (and their families!) have been clearing the site and gritting today along with Mrs Wilson. Huge thanks to them for their efforts.

I drove in to school today and the main roads are clear. Minor roads remain slushy and with the forecast overnight being for freezing temperatures, the forecast is for poor driving conditions in the morning.

The plan for Tuesday is therefore as follows:

  • Staff living locally and those with cars able to access the village will be in school;

  • School will be open for child care for those who need to work and cannot make alternative arrangements;

  • Those who do not feel confident to drive to school, please stay at home and your child’s absence will be authorised;

  • Those who are able to look after their children at home tomorrow, please do so;

  • School will open at 8.20am and registration will remain open until 10am in order for everyone to stagger their journey times;

  • Before School Club will not be open;

  • French Club will be open;

  • Anyone sending their children to school but who can collect at 1.40pm, that would be helpful;

  • Please send children with snacks but Mrs Barker says that even without catering suppliers delivering, she can cook for the children and

  • After School Club will be open but the earlier the children can be collected the better in order that staff can return home safely.

If the children are coming to school, please send them in waterproofs, wellies, layers, hats, scarves and gloves and send them with spare clothes just in case.

We hope that this approach ensures that everyone can stay safe and that we provide a limited service for people who are required to be in work. The forecast at the moment suggests that the snow may thaw during Tuesday/Wednesday and we sincerely hope that our Christmas Productions can go ahead from Wednesday.

Best wishes,

Mrs Moss
