80 schools in Flintshire closed today due to weather

News and Info from Deeside, Flintshire, North Wales
This article is old - Published: Sunday, Dec 10th, 2017

Monday morning’s forecast has temperatures dropping to -4C at 7am and staying under -2C through to 9am.

No snowfall is predicted today, however there is a yellow warning for ice due to the obviously poor conditions. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

80 schools in Flintshire are closed today due to the weather, citing safety of children, parents and staff – and that they aim to reopen on Tuesday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Deeside Sixth is closed “due to potentially unsafe conditions. The mock exams planned will be postponed until next Monday.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

All Coleg Cambria sites will be closed for full time students today. “At this stage, all sites will still be open for staff and employer courses.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Other local authorities in the UK have opted for a blanket approach with a full school closure declared, however in Flintshire it appears the decisions are being left to each Head Teacher as is customary. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

As always parents should have various digital notifications in place to inform them direct. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
