Emergency school closures

Closures for severe weather and other emergencies

We will send text messages to parents to alert them to school closures. Please make sure that your school has your correct mobile phone number. 

When schools and nurseries are closed due to an emergency, we will publish a list of those closed here.

If a school is not mentioned on the list of closures it is open as usual.

If a school has a nursery attached, please assume that if the school is closed the nursery is also closed, unless we state otherwise.

Other ways to find out about closures

Find out if your school or nursery is closed by listening to local radio and checking Edinburgh Council twitter account.
