Snow update - Greswold open on Wednesday 13/12/17

Dear Parents and Carers,

Greswold Primary School, including Greswold Greyhounds, will be open on Wednesday 13th December as usual. The site team have endeavoured to clear paths to all entrances to enable safe access for pupils, staff and visitors. The car park remains problematic for staff so I must insist that parents do not use the car park for any reason for the remainder of the week.

The catering team will be able to provide a choice of hot or cold lunch options on Wednesday but the Christmas lunch will be postponed due to delivery issues of necessary food. 

The pavements outside school are also problematic so please do take time and care to get to the school safely. We will delay closing the registers until 9.15 but parents should aim, where possible, for children to arrive on time. Our office and staff teams will have many tasks to complete on Wednesday morning so please only come to the school office for queries if absolutely necessary. If your child will be absent from school due to illness please follow the usual procedures and inform the office team by phone by 9:30.

Children should wear Greswold uniform including school shoes while in the buildings on Wednesday but should obviously dress appropriately for the journeys to and from school. It is extremely helpful if all winter clothing, accessories and footwear is labelled.

I thank all parents for their support and patience during these challenging weather conditions. If any conditions change overnight, I will review this decision in light of safeguarding and safety priorities and communicate accordingly but I am expecting that school will be open.

I look forward to seeing all children and staff in school on Wednesday. Above all, stay safe.

Yours faithfully

Karen Scott
