Severe Weather - School Closures

Occasionally it is necessary for school to close during periods of extreme weather.  This decision is not taken lightly but it is important that we put the safety of our pupils and their families first.  


Should we have to close early on a day when children are at school, you will receive a text message informing you of this.  Please ensure you inform us of any change to your mobile number.


If heavy snow or severe weather conditions mean that school will be closed all day, this information will be communicated in various ways:-


-  we will request that BBC NI post this information on their website.


-  information about closures will be posted on the home page of our school website.


-  information will be tweeted on the school Twitter account - @cairnshillps


-  the NI Direct website will also have details added.


Hopefully these measures will mean that everyone is kept up-to-date regarding any closures and you can be fully informed of when school will reopen.
