Dear Parent / Carer
In the light of the Amber weather warning, all schools in Caerphilly have been urged by the Local Authority to consider closing on Thursday 1st March in the interests of the health and safety of pupils, parents and staff.
As a result of this Rhydri will be closed tomorrow and the situation reassessed later in the day on Thursday with regards to whether or not the school will open on Friday. Please check the Caerphilly School Closure website for the latest updates – http://www.caerphilly.gov.uk/Services/Schools-and-learning/Schools,-term-dates-and-closures/Check-if-your-school-is-closed.aspx
This is an approach that is being adopted by some other neighbouring authorities and seems to be sensible in light of current forecasts and the unpredictability of the snowfall forecast.
