If weather conditions deteriorate rapidly, we will close the school. We will arrange for pupils using school transport to depart early.
Parents of pupils in outlying areas who think that school transport may not reach them should try to make arrangements for their child to be uplifted directly from school. If possible, telephone us beforehand. When conditions are bad, especially in the outlying areas, parents should not send their children to school if they are in doubt. Please inform us if that is the situation.
If the school transport does not reach you due to road conditions, do not send your child to school unless you are prepared to arrange transport to school and home again.
For information about whether the school is to be closed or, if closed, when it is to re-open, the most reliable method of communication is for you to phone the school during working hours (01738 472800). The best time would be during the early afternoon.
Groupcall - Will be used to help to bridge the communication gap between the school office, parents, teachers and other school contacts. Groupcall provides a quick and easy way of sending mobile phone text messages (SMS) to one or many recipients, quickly and easily.
If you are a parent or guardian of a pupil who attends Perth Grammar School and would like to receive Groupcall messages please contact the school office with your mobile phone number.
Radio Tay - FM96.4/AM1584 (Perth only) and AM1161/FM102.8 (everywhere else) may be used to broadcast information from time to time, particularly between 7am and 8am. (AM1584 often gives the most info).
