The council has taken the decision to close all schools and nurseries in Glasgow on Friday March 2 following closures on Wednesday 28 February and Thursday 1 March due to the adverse weather conditions.

We will continue to post updated weather related information and school closure details via our social media channels - on twitter @GlasgowCC and Facebook

Our expectation is that schools and nurseries will be open as normal on Monday March 5th but we will communicate any decisions as soon as they've been taken.

We understand this can be very frustrating for parents & carers but our aim is to keep schools open and educate our children and young people - closing them is always a last resort.

The safety of our children, young people and staff is always our prime concern - we take all factors into account before decisions are made about school closures.

Thankfully we do not experience this extreme weather very often but we know that school closures are very challenging and create a lot of debate!

We inform everyone as soon as we can to reduce work and childcare issues for our families - please bear with us...and the snow!
