Holbeach Primary Academy have made the decision to close on Friday as early as possible after discussion with other local primary schools. We were informed this afternoon that school buses will not be running on Friday and the weather forecast shows that temperatures will not rise above -1 at any point before the end of the school week. This gives us serious concerns about the safety of getting children and staff to school with compacted snow concealing significant patches of ice.
Lincolnshire County Council have asked for pupils and staff to be informed as quickly as possible. We cannot see the current situation improving so would like to give families as much notice as possible to arrange child care.
