School closure 10.3.23

After much deliberation we have taken the decision to close school tomorrow, Friday 10 March. Based on the detailed weather forecast from the Met Office for the coming 24 hours Holmfirth J I & N School will be CLOSED tomorrow.

Hopefully this early decision will enable families to make appropriate plans for tomorrow and then be able to have a restful evening rather than waiting until the morning for a decision. This decision will stand regardless of what the weather decides to do overnight. Our priority is ensuring everyone is as safe as possible. Many staff members live quite a distance from school and it would be more than likely that we would not have enough members of staff to open school safely. Tomorrow, staff will put suggested activities on Seesaw for anyone wanting to work at home.
