Emergency School Closure Parent Information

Flintshire County Council has reviewed the current procedure for notifying parents/guardians and pupils when schools need to close at short notice due to adverse weather conditions or other emergencies, such as a gas leak etc. A new procedure has been developed to enable head teachers or nominated back up staff to enter emergency/unplanned school closure details directly onto the Flintshire Website at their earliest convenience via internet access.
