School closure update – 9am Tuesday 29 March

Dear Parents, Carers and Families

There will be online assemblies for all students in Y7-11 in year teams (on MS Teams) at 10:15am. We will give instructions about the day’s lesson at that point.  

There are currently two possible scenarios:

  1. UK Power Network gives an early indication that the building can reopen, and power can be switched on. We will then proceed to open in time for period 3 (11:15am).
  2. They do not, and we decide to close for the day. In this eventuality, students will receive work to complete for periods 3-5 on Show My Homework (SMH) or Teams. Where teachers are in a position to do this at short notice, there may also be some ‘live’ lessons, communicated to students through their MS Teams. Reminders about how to access Teams will be posted on SMH.  

Best wishes

Acland Burghley School
