As weather forecasts are predicting snow and very cold weather conditions we thought it would be helpful to remind students, parents and carers of the college’s procedure in advance of any forthcoming bad weather.
If overnight snowfalls are so heavy as to seriously disrupt traffic or cause journeys to be dangerous, or we have any concern over health and safety due to the college’s large site, it may be necessary to close the college.
Where possible we will always aim to keep the college open, however the decision to close or remain open is often complicated as we have to take in to account so many unknowns for example; conditions of the local streets and pavements, if the buses have stopped running or the number of staff who are able to get into college.
If a decision is made to close the college please consider the following communication points:
- Our College website – www.macclesfield.ac.uk
- Social media sites, Twitter and Facebook
- Regular announcements on local radio Cheshire’s Silk 106.9 and Signal 1
If no announcements are made, then please assume we are open for business as usual.
