Following the government announcement at 5:15pm, this evening, I can confirm that Dalton school will close on Friday 20th March, at the end of the school day, for most children. These children will begin home learning, guided by their teacher, through the school website and ping. It is now vital that any of our parents, who are key workers or NHS employees, and need to send their children to school, email me as soon as possible on the following email: head.dalton@kirkleeseducation.uk This will allow me to make provision, in the next 48 hours, and support any arrangement you may need. This email will remain open for anyone to use during the time of closure. You will be provided with your children's class teacher's email tomorrow and the same applies - do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to support you at this difficult time with home learning or other issues that may arise. . Kindest regards. Ian RICHARDSON
