SNOW CLOSURES – TUESDAY 12TH MARCH

 

Dear Parents

The Education Department has decided to close all States Schools following advice from the Police and States Works and the Colleges are also following suit. The Preps class will therefore remain closed and there will be no formal lessons.

We have carried out a risk assessment today and have made the decision to offer emergency cover only between 9.30 and 3.30pm tomorrow at the Monkey Puzzle @ King’s site only for families who require essential childcare. This facility is offered to both Monkey Puzzle School and Monkey Puzzle @ King’s children as we consider the location at Les Cotils too treacherous to open.

 

We are offering this service to our families but parents MUST make their own assessment and decision as to whether or not they wish to make use of these restricted hours.  Travel to and from school will be entirely at your own risk

Entry to the Kings site will be as normal but please be aware that extreme caution is required on the slope down to the car park.

We look forward to returning as normal on Thursday.

We thank you for your understanding

Caroline, Corinne and Alison

 

Please take a note of these important dates for the coming weeks…..
