2nd March: SCHOOL CLOSED
St. Paul's will be closed on Friday 2nd March due to the adverse weather conditions.
This evening we have received official advice from Surrey C.C who have had a conference call with the Met Office, Emergency Management Team and various other Surrey agencies. They forwarded the following information:
“The snow has been worse than expected and they are therefore extending the Amber alert for Wind and Snow to cover all of Surrey. This will be in place until 08.00 tomorrow morning. We can expect between 5 to 10 cm of snow tonight, heavy until midnight and then lighter, but another flurry mid-morning. There is a small risk of freezing rain.”
Consequently, staff (some of whom have already struggled to get in this week) and families would be facing potentially hazardous journeys tomorrow. As a result, in common with other Dorking schools, we have taken the decision this evening to close the school tomorrow, Friday 2nd March.
We look forward to seeing you next week and thank you for your support.
Mrs. D. Malia
