What will happen if the school closes due to snow?

It's that time of year again!! ❄️


On the news and in the newspapers we are being told that we are about to be hit with the GREATEST snow storm in HISTORY!!


In preparation for this event we wanted to let you all know the following:


In the event of a decision being made to close one or both of our schools or any of our satellite sites a message will be relayed to parents/carers & staff on our various media sites, through email & text message. This will be in addition to being reported to the snowline managed by the local radio stations.


Examples of messages could be:


DOROTHY GOODMAN will be closed today due to snow. Further information will follow on local radio, our website & social media.


MESSAGE FROM DOROTHY GOODMAN due to inclement weather RICHMOND PRIMARY is closed please take your child to our LOWER SCHOOL site. Further to follow on local radio, our website & social media.


These decisions will not be made likely and will only be made to ensure the health and safety of our students & staff.
