Headteachers work hard to keep schools open wherever possible, but circumstances may mean that they have to make a decision to close the school, or amend school start and/or finish times.
Where to get school closure information
If school closures are happening, you may be notified by text message by your child's school, or through a "parent portal" app.
You can also check your child's school's website or social media. See contact details and website information for schools in York in our schools directory.
Planned school closures
For information on other planned dates schools may be closed, see school term dates.
