Inclement Weather

Please ensure your children wear appropriate footwear to school during inclement weather, snow/ice and wear a coat (hat, scarf, gloves). Runners are allowed and/or children can bring wellies in a bag to wear outdoors.

 

Please check the school website (www.billisns.com) and/or Parents’ Association facebook page. A note will only be put up if the school is closed otherwise you can assume that school will be open for those for whom it is safe to travel.

 

Parents need to check with bus drivers if their bus is running. If school buses do not run please do not leave children at school without checking that school is open and making sure you have arranged collection when school is finished.  This also applies to parents who drop children to school by car.
