Councillor Huw Hilditch-Roberts, Cabinet Lead
Member for Education, Children’s Services and Public Engagement for Denbighshire County Council, said: “We
understand that the announcement has come very suddenly and that parents/
guardians will now be trying to put alternative plans in place in some cases.
“The date of closure is down to each individual
school and their governing bodies to decide. Some will continue until Friday
afternoon but others will decide to close sooner. The information passed
on by our schools will be shared through the Council’s website: www.denbighshire.gov.uk , through its
Facebook and Twitter accounts and through the school’s own communications
“What is not clear at this stage is whether there
is a suggested date for return to school. We will be pressing on the Welsh
Government for some guidance as soon as possible and will emphasise the
importance on having clear guidance and communications with school
communities. This will help parents/ guardians to plan effectively and
manage what is a difficult, yet understandable decision”.
