From the Department of Education

In recent days Department of Education officials have been monitoring Met Office weather warnings for Northern Ireland as well as information from other government departments on the potential damage which may be caused by the incoming storm. I appreciate the challenges presented to Principals by the lateness of the information issued on Sunday evening about today’s closure, but I am sure you also appreciate that the situation was continually evolving during yesterday and it was important to make the right decision.

The Civil Contingencies Group is the forum at which all of central, local and public sector organisations consider the impact of emergencies which may impact on Northern Ireland. Following a meeting of that Group this afternoon, and having taken advice from the Met Office on the prolonged nature and potential severity of the storm, I am writing to confirm that all schools should remain closed on Tuesday 17th October.
