Given our recent weather, I am aware that these conditions could move into more severe wintery conditions very quickly. As a reminder, on occasion, schools may have a late start or closure for inclement weather, this could be for snow, ice or other unforseen weather related circumstances. Although at times the conditions around Anderson's Bay may not reflect the road conditions for some of the other major roadways in Dunedin, decisions for late starts or closures are made as a "blanket decision" for all schools in the Dunedin area, taking into consideration the need for staff and families at schools to travel across the city. Decisions to have a late start or closure will be notified on Classic Hits 89.4 FM. As soon as we receive notification of a late start or closure an email will be sent to all families and a note will be put on the home page of our www.andybay.ac.nz school website, in addition to these two points of communication we will also send out a SKOOL LOOP SMS message.
