Dear Principal

Officials in the Department of Education are continuing to monitor Met Office weather warnings for Northern Ireland as well as information from other government departments on the potential damage which may be caused by the incoming storm. I appreciate that you would wish to have early information about any decision to close schools tomorrow, and I can confirm that a decision will be made early this afternoon based on the latest advice.

We will stay in touch with you as soon as we have further information.

Derek Baker
