Storm Ciara: Weather Update

Storm with lightning

Information for Parents

AIS will be regularly checking the weather conditions and will keep parents updated via twitter and our website face book, if schooling or bus routes are disrupted, as there may be possible delays due to the effects of the storm from Sunday night. If this is the case, please be alerted to a possible message early Monday morning.

Please also note that messages are sent only if school or bus routes are disrupted. The school will remain open and classes will continue as usual unless a message is posted to say otherwise. However, parents remain best placed to make decisions whether or not to send their child to school based on localised safety information.
