As predicted the weather conditions have created dangerous conditions for travel across Harrogate. The official advice from the local authority recommends everyone stays off the roads today, see message below.
We have taken the decision to close school today, Friday 15th January, and continue to deliver learning on our seesaw learning platform.
The safety of everyone associated with the school is our first priority and the conditions around school remain treacherous.
NYCC Advice: ‘People should not be travelling during the Covid-19 lockdown unless absolutely essential and now we are appealing to everybody not to go out and not to drive unless they have to due to the effects of wintry weather.
“The conditions on the roads are extremely challenging and we want to avoid accidents and people getting stuck at all costs, especially during a pandemic, as this puts travellers as well as highways staff and the emergency services at great risk.’
