Good morning

Having assessed the situation after the very heavy overnight snowfall we will be closed today.  HHS is a very tricky site to clear as it’s over three levels, we have had our amazing site team of 4 clearing until 11pm last night and again from 5am!  However, we will have to close due to:

  • The site will not be cleared of snow and ice for use with full emergency routes out; our teams have worked until 11pm last night and were onsite at 5am and will continue to clear all day
  • The car park will not be a priority to clear and there are currently no trains in or out of Alexandra Palace Station and delays on the tubes, buses are significantly impacted and running a reduced service meaning many of our staff and students cannot get in or home
  • Primary schools and nurseries will be closing meaning staff will be at home with dependants, care services will be disrupted meaning family members will need to support vulnerable relatives

Students will be set assignments via the DPR by their teachers: they should check this between 9.30-10am.  In period one we advise you to undertake your 20 minutes of daily reading or go outside and make a snow sculpture!  Once you have finished your snow sculpture (and sent your form tutor a photo!) you can logon to DPR and start some work for the day!
