28 February 2018 – Statement from the Department of Education & Skills

 

Given the disruption to transport and the safety risks arising, most particularly in relation to the ability to get home safely before blizzard like conditions hit Munster and Leinster, all schools, third level institutions, colleges and centres of further education in red areas will be closed tomorrow and Friday.

In relation to Connaught and Ulster decisions on school closures will be made individually depending on the circumstances in their area. The situation in Connaught and Ulster will be kept under review.

The Department’s guidance for schools in relation to making up for time lost due to unforeseen closures is set out in Circular 0009/2017 which is available at the following link-https://www.education.ie/en/Circulars-and-Forms/Active-Circulars/cl0009_2017.pdf

As outlined in the circular, significant flexibility is given to schools to make up tuition hours lost due to unforeseen circumstances.
