What reasons will a school close if no snow falls overnight?
Ok there is snow on the ground but provided the roads are clear are their other reasons schools can choose to close?
I have just heard that we are starting lessons late tomorrow: Period 1 is cancelled to allow staff and students extra time to get on site in the morning.
We had a phone call on Friday afternoon (yes, they phoned us... unprompted) informing us that the exams office had the use of a 4x4 to make sure that the invigilators could get to school and our son's AS exam would definitely take place, no matter what. I guess we've had a couple of inches so far and it's still snowing. However, while getting to the end of our road is dodgy the main roads are all open and running smoothly.
If the worst comes to the worst he'll have to hike, but I am expecting to be able to get the car out tomorrow.

rad One of my schools has separate year blocks and the playground that the children have to cross can become thick sheet ice if there is any dampness in this sort of weather. Not easy to sort quickly as it is a large expanse. We are on an exposed hill and often everything refreezes
Come to think of it the steep North-facing hill between our buildings turns into the Cresta Run when its icy. Our caretaker has his work cut out to ensure that people don't need crampons to get down to the other buildings safely.
Just had the Phone call from our Head all Solihull schools closed tomorrow blanket closure, so we are closed Monday.
All staff that want to do any work are working remotely including me save me tracking into work just adjusted our Gateway to allocate more resources for Staff and Students.
Oh dear, just got a text to say we're closed tomorrow - just don't know what I'm going to do with myself all day....
Wife is not happy and has spent the last five minutes punching me in the arm and swearing.

Amber warning for tomorrow from the Met office for the North East but I doubt if we will be closed, won't know until the morning if I get a phone call that is! more likely to find out from my senior techie who manages the website.
Advantages of updating the website, you know first.
Disadvantages of updating the website, you get woken at stupid o'clock.
I dont mind getting woken up, but only if I get to stay in bed all day!
My road has been closed by the police - mainly because people use it as a cut through for a main road and that in the last 3 days 4 cars have been written off into lamp posts!
Roads are mainly fine here although have started getting very icy.
