Daughter just came in excited and told me her school was closed tomorrow due to storm Ophelia (or is a hurricane ?) I checked on the Belfast Telly website and it appears to be true. I should have done a link thing but it might be wise to check your school website. Also travel may be affected. If anyone has any extra info do please post as I was happily napping until DD gave me the news.
Not sure about nursery schools though as the reason they're closing is that the storm will hit at home time and nursery schools will be out before then. Guess I'll have to ring and find out in a while.
Ah, the kids that wake up this morning expecting to go to school will have a lovely surprise. I hope parents manage to find last minute childcare if necessary but since it's a national thing, hopefully employers will be sympathetic ?
It was DD who told me, what with her network of social media sleuths who never cease to amaze me with their knowledge - (non homework related). All calm outside except for the usual shitty rain.
Just got a text from school - kids off again tomorrow (Tuesday) oh ye gods the only thing keeping me going today was the thought of normality returning tomorrow which it obviously won't. Stay safe everyone
Yep, very quiet here too - a bit of wind but it sounds worse than it is. The only thing that's weird is all the shops being closed and the lack of cars. I don't want to tempt fate incase it goes mental later ! Indoors and all warm which is lovely
