At 7.30 this morning DESC put out the following statement:

The Department of Education, Sport and Culture has announced that its schools and UCM will be closed today due to travel difficulties, safety issues and the ongoing forecast.
A number of road closures are in place and many bus services aren't operating because of the conditions.
This decision is not been taken lightly. Whilst some schools may be accessible, the safety of pupils and staff travelling to and from school across the Island is of paramount importance to us when we make decisions.

Can I ask all St. Ninian's students and staff to remain at home and not try and travel to school this morning. Teachers will be including learning tasks onto their Google Classrooms so that students can continue with their learning at home during the day.
