This morning children were greeted by icy footpaths and no less snow than yesterday! Many walked (and some sledged) to school while others were taken by car.
Either method was risky however due to ice. Many footpaths had little or no grit on them, yet many roads had dangerous patches of black ice.
Despite all this, spirits were generally high and St Albans is back to normal for one day. One glorious sunny day it is too!
More snowfall is expected in the coming days so watch out for more cancellations.
In the case of school closure, communication between schools and parents is much improved. Parents are alerted by cascade or similar systems and information is posted on the schools’ websites.
