Public schools and preschools will open on Friday 30 September 2016 if power is available and it is safe to do so.
If a school is unable to operate in any capacity and closes, parents will be notified by the school. Staff members will be on site to ensure the safety of students if they attend. Some schools that may open may offer a modified program.
If anyone is concerned about local conditions tomorrow morning (30/9) they should keep their children home.
Parents should note that some bus services in regional areas may be cancelled on Thursday afternoon (29/9) and Friday morning (30/9), depending on local conditions.
School and preschool closures will be posted to the department's Facebook page as they are known.
