Is it not individual school across the country vary.
I also doubt that many schools put details online as not all students have access to the net.

Ah...if only it'd snow through the night and make it thick enough to have a cancelation *sigh*, that'd be nice, then I could turn my cruddy maths coursework into something it bit more acceptable *sigh*.

As it is, I'm tired and poo-poo-ed. Blah

Night everone.

I get the feeling that it would take much more than a snow-storm to close my sixth-form (nothing short of the apocalypse could). Even a couple of years ago, when there was 3 inches of snow (highest in this area for decades), the damn place was still open for business, despite every other school within 50 miles closing down.

For some reason, this area wasn't very badly affected. The school was still open, but only half the teachers were there (and most of the pupils just said "f**k that" and stayed home).

Hmphed- dragged myself out of bed, forced into schoolwear, lumbered to school only to find it was in fact...closed. Ah well, I had it better than the poor lad I met on the way back- he'd cycled from 3 or 4 miles away.

Ah well, no lie in but still- day off, huzzah!

You poor buggers. I feel for you honestly. You get to miss school because there is a bit too much snow lying around. *waves a hanky* Over here there is a rule that if it hits 40C and rooms for use at the school do not have air conditioning, then the school must close. They merely contemplated this once, but thought that two pathetic ceiling fans compensated for the sweltering heat. Not sure what kids would do if they were sent home though. Our summer is an average of 43C, and higher still over weeks before and after Christmas, but the water in the river and town pool hits a comfy 35C at that time. Snow I tells ya. Just snuggle up in bed and remember that some people will never get that luxury

Sire,

the problem is ice. Yesterday, the council sent the gritting lorries out far too late so all the roads were icy. There were loads of crashes, even more little bumps, wheelspins everywhere and people having to drive extremely slowly. Total gridlock. Some people I know had to walk a long way home from school. I didn't get back until 8 at night - I intended to get my lift at 5:15 after my after-school session and get home for 5:30, but I actually left at 7:00 (mum was stuck in traffic on the way there from her work - she had to pass school anyway) and got back at 8.

That's why they closed the schools, not because of cold.

I'm off school. I go to the same school as Dickie, but he came on asking this when I was tucked up in bed.

In fact, it was announced on Midlands Today on TV and on local radio stations at about 10:30 last night that all schools within the Birmingham and Solihull districts are closed today. But I haven't found anything on the net about it, strangely enough.

So you're saying that in the suburbs of Crawley nobody ever knows if the schools are closed? And it isn't today?
