School Closure Notifications
UPDATE: Monday 8th February 2021 - School is open for those pupils of key workers and vulnerable. Please ensure that all children and adults wear sensible footwear for school and be careful underfoot. Ensure children are kept with you at all times in and around school grounds and keep them away from snow / ice.
In the event that we have snow and school has to be closed, parents will be informed of this by text, the RSA facebook page and parentmail through School Gateway. We will also update our own school website in the 'news and events' section under 'announcements'.
School closure is reported on Three Counties Radio. Parents can also find out if school is open by looking at www.hertsdirect.org where our status will be posted. If parents would like to, there is a new system called ‘Everbridge’ that they can sign up to and this automatically informs you via text or email whether the school is open or closed. To sign up, just go to: member.everbridge.net/index/892807736725489
This link will direct you to the ‘sign up’ page where you should click on the ‘sign up’ button located at the top right hand side of the page on the grey strip, and from there follow the instructions. It only takes 5 minutes to register and you can edit your information at any time should you change your mobile number or email address.
As a school, we will always aim to open in severe weather but we do believe that the safety of children and staff is paramount and therefore we will make an appropriate decision with this in mind. Thank you for your support.
If you have recently updated your phone number please ensure this is shared with the school office as a matter of urgency.
