Snow update #2 10th December 2017

Dear Parents and Carers

OMS and OIA have been assessing the situation at the schools due to the weather conditions. With great regret we have made the decision to close the schools tomorrow (Monday 11th December).

Most of our teachers live many miles from Olney and some have already said they will be unable to travel and can’t get off their estate or out of their village. In addition some have their own children whose schools are closed. We will therefore not have enough staff in place to teach or to keep the children safe. Our minds were made up when we received Tweets from Thames Valley Police saying that no-one should travel unless absolutely necessary.

We realise that closing our schools can cause difficulties and therefore wanted to give as much notice as possible.

We will keep you updated via Facebook, email, and on the school websites.

Regards

Steve Dunning and Glenn Young
