You MUST inform school if your child is absent due to severe conditions making the journey unsafe.
On occasions, school will need to close and a message will go out via the following lines of communication:
- Our School Website [www.dentoncommunitycollege.org.uk]
- Twitter account
Please check these sites for up to date information, such as opening times, important messages etc.
- Text Message – A text message will go out to parents as soon as possible. If on the rare occasion school closes at a time within the school day, parents/carers will be informed by text message, therefore it is important to keep your contact details up to date.
- Local Radio – Information is given out on: Key 103, Tameside Radio
If conditions worsen in the school day and parents feel it is absolutely necessary to collect children, the school should be contacted prior to collection. Please avoid collecting children before the end of the day unless you feel their safety is at risk.
Most importantly WARM clothing/footwear– Please ensure your son/daughter is appropriately clothed for cold / wet / windy weather and that shoes/boots have good grip for icy conditions for their journey to and from school. Once in school they must wear full school uniform.
