Emergency Closure Information

snow day

During severe weather

Clackmannanshire Council will try to keep schools open whenever possible. However, this is while taking into account the health, safety and wellbeing of both staff and pupils.

The decision to close the school can be taken by either the Headteacher or by the Director of Education. In some cases there may be only partial closure for particular year groups but the same procedures apply.

In adverse weather there may be reasons why school is interrupted or school is unable to open either fully or partially. Should this be the case information will be placed on Clacks Web and sent out via Central FM

NB This information is posted from 7 am onwards and updates provided, as and when circumstances change

Unexpected closure during the school day

Unexpected situations (such as severe weather conditions during the day or heating failure) may lead to pupils being sent home without prior warning. Please make sure you discuss this with your child and that they know where to go in the event of such an emergency – we will rely on their word that they have a safe place to which they can go.
