Inclement Weather
Weather forecasts have been warning of severe weather and snowfall.  We have an ‘Inclement Weather’ policy on our website which explains the procedures for closing school due to the weather (fingers crossed we won’t need to). I have sent out a text message to everyone today to make sure everyone is receiving texts. Text Messaging is our first communication method should we need to close school and I am asking that if you did not receive the text message can you email me, lsmyth682@c2kni.net with your mobile number and I can add your number to this service.

Time keeping
We would ask parents to bring their children to school on time. Good timekeeping is a skill for life. If you continually bring your child late to school, they lose out on valuable class time and disrupt the class routine. Teachers will be keeping a record of late comers. Being on time to collect them is equally important. If for any reason you are delayed, please contact the office in ample time to inform the class teacher.

Christmas Dinner
We are looking forward to enjoying our Christmas Dinner in school on Thursday 7th December.
