The attached letter from Scottish Borders Council outlines the general principles to be followed in cases of emergency such as severe winter weather or severe flooding.

Winter weather can be very variable and it is easy to be caught out by sudden changes. In the event of severe weather we will make every effort to keep the school open and continue as normal.

However, there may be situations where this is not possible and it is therefore important that you follow the points below in terms of transport arrangements.

Severe Weather

During adverse weather, school transport may be subject to cancelled services, amended routes, longer journey times or alternative bus stops used. In extreme cases there may be the need to cancel all school services.
