School Closed Today (Tues 16th) due to adverse weather conditions
Unfortunately, I have had to close the school today (Tues 16th) at very late notice due to adverse weather conditions. Considerable time was spent yesterday preparing for possible snow, however when I arrived in Newtownhamilton this morning at 7.25am the road conditions were fine with all 4 of our bus drivers having started their morning routes. Unfortunately, the weather conditions deteriorated dramatically from 7.45am and this resulted in 3 of our bus drivers turning back for health and safety reasons. As a result, I was left with no alternative but to close the school at 8.12am. I apologise for any inconvenience that this late closure may have caused to pupils, parents and staff.
Our Year 9-11 Parents' Evening (Surname M-Z) scheduled for this afternoon has been postponed and will now take place on Tuesday 23rd January (3.30-6.00pm).
The 9X FACT (Fermanagh & Armagh Communities Together) trip planned for this evening has been cancelled.
At this stage, we are hoping that the Year 11 Essential Skills Communication Level 1 exam scheduled for this afternoon will go ahead. I will contact the relevant pupils later this morning.
Finally, I encourage everyone to take extreme caution during these adverse weather conditions.
