School Closure Friday 2nd March

Dear Parents/Carers,

We have been following the weather reports very carefully to help us make a decision about school closures for tomorrow. As you are aware we are in the unprecedented position of having a Met Office Red weather warning for snow covering all our academy schools overnight. It is difficult to predict what Devon will look like when we wake up in the morning but based on all the information we are receiving from the relevant authorities, we are extremely concerned about the hazardous travel conditions that our children, young people, families and staff could face in the morning.

 We simply cannot predict with enough accuracy when roads are likely to be safe for travel and whilst we appreciate that school closures are disruptive to our families and the wider community, we are going to heed the warnings we are being given and close South Dartmoor Community College tomorrow.

Staff will be setting work via Show My Homework

 Yours faithfully,

 Mr Paul Collins - Principal

Mrs Rachel Shaw - Executive Principal/CEO

Mr Graeme Cock – Chair of Directors
