Friday 4 March 2016 – classes aim to start at 10am due to predicted weather conditions


Update: Thursday 3 March, 4pm


The Met Office has issued yellow warning for snow and ice in our area due to predicted weather conditions over the next 24 hours.


Based on the latest information and concerns about how local infrastructures and transport will manage, we will aim to start classes at 10am tomorrow morning (Friday 4 March), to allow extra time for students and staff to travel safely.


The plan is currently for all buildings to be open for the normal working hours so staff should aim to arrive at regular times if possible, but allow extra time for your normal travel period.


Students who arrive and their tutor is not yet in college, please report to reception where you will be directed to an area in which you can work.


FURTHER UPDATES


Please do stay in touch with our communications (by web, email, radio, telephone with managers, twitter/Face book, etc) in case the advice from the college should change first thing in the morning.


We want to ensure everyone is in the loop to minimise any disruption or confusion.


Parking/transport to college: wherever possible can staff and students please take public transport as access to car parks may be difficult.


Exams: Exams at Brunel Construction Centre are due to take place as normal (1-3pm).


We aim to give the clearest communications we can which are as timely as weather predictions allow, and so we hope this early decision will help staff and students. However it is never an exact science so we thank you for your understanding.


This message is for all centres:


  • Huddersfield Centre

  • Dewsbury Centre

  • Wheelwright Centre (Batley School of Art)

  • Highfields Centre for Media, Music and Performing Arts

  • Brunel Construction Centre

  • Engineering Centre
