Red Weather Warning - Bus and School Procedures

posted Dec 4, 2015, 7:13 AM by Deputy Principal   [ updated Dec 4, 2015, 7:13 AM ]

The Department of Education and Bus Eireann’s School Transport Section have recently contacted us to make us aware of a change in their school bus policies.
From this point on, on any occasion where a Status Red weather warning is in operation for an area, School Bus transport within that area will instantly be cancelled. Bus Eireann will inform the public through the media that the Status Red warning is in place.
While this will result in many students and families being inconvenienced, it should not be assumed that the school is closed.  We will communicate any closure to you, by text message, to inform you of school closure. The school will endeavour to open and operate as normal in such circumstances; obviously this will be taken on a case-by-case basis.
