Snow Day

IMPORTANT REMINDER - Kent Schools Closure Website Has Been Suspended    

 

You will have heard about the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into effect on 25th May 2018.  These regulations apply to all organisations, including schools, Trusts and charities, if they process, store or manage personal data. This legislation will directly affect the Kent County Council Schools Closure Website which stores the email address of any person who requests to receive notifications about when a school reports that it is closed.  They cannot be confident at this time that the storage of email addresses and other data is compliant with the GDPR and therefore they have been advised to suspend the service.   The Schools Closure website has therefore been closed while KCC considers whether a replacement system can be created that is compliant with the new legislation.      

 

Therefore, we will use the school website to update parents if the school is closed.

 

We will display this information on the Homepage scroll.

What do we do if it is SNOWING?

 

Firstly, it will say on the Home Page whether the school is open or closed.

Next, decide if it is safe to travel... If it is, then warm clothes, wellie boots, scarves etc will be a must.

Please ensure if it is snowing badly that you make a packed lunch for your child as we may not be able to provide a hot meal.

Finally, if we have to close when the children are here, we will contact you by email and text.

 

STAY SAFE!

YES, it is SNOWING..... What could I do at home today?

  • Make homemade play dough - 1 cup flour1/2 cup salt2 tbsp. cream of tartar2 tbsp. oil1 cup water food coloring (optional)Scent (cinnamon, vanilla, mint, etc. – also optional). In a saucepan, mix flour, salt, cream of tartar, scent ingredient, and oil. Slowly mix in water until it’s all smooth. Then turn the heat on medium and stir until it forms a ball of dough. I used a heat-resistant rubber spatula so I could scrape the bottom of the pan easily. Once it’s a ball, plop it onto some wax paper until it’s cool enough for you to touch.
