Snow Alert : School Info For Tuesday 12th (Update 2)

All the Island’s schools information.

Last updated: 7:09am Tuesday

Snow Alert : School Info For Tuesday 12thHaving battled with updating the “are they open, are they closed” nature of school updates over the last week, we’ve decided to come up with another way of doing it.

It’s one that we hope you will find easier to understand too.

It works on a traffic light system. Green showing that the school will be open; Orange, that the decision on the school is Pending, or marked Expected to open. Red shows that it’s closed.

Hope you like it.

You guys deserve some kind of civic duty award for the work you’ve put in over the past week getting info out there when other avenues were failing all about us.
I really hope some of those who have benefitted and don’t yet contribute financially will choose this time to channel some cash in your direction.
Thanks again to you both (all. Hi Alfie!)

What Steve said. We’ve been reluctantly tuning in to IW Radio (only because it’s accessible from under the duvet) but your information is so much more comprehensive. Time to get a Blackberry, perhaps… :-)
