School open despite snowy weather, but Sheffield Young Voices trip cancelled.
School was able to remain open as normal on Wednesday, despite the wintry conditions. Advice was given to take great care if travelling in to school, and for families to arrive when they could.
Due to the snowy weather, we did not attend the Sheffield Young Voices concert in the evening. In South Yorkshire, the conditions were forecast to be worse than Hampsthwaite, with schools closed and transport delays. The forecast for the Sheffield area was for snow and sleet to continue through the day, with wintry showers increasing in the afternoon and evening. The Young Voices organisers were informed that we were unable to attend. We hoped that if sufficient schools were in the same position, they would arrange to postpone the concert to another date.
Parents were thanked for their understanding, as it is important that the safety of our children is the highest priority in all of these decisions.
