Early Closure Procedures 

In the event of weather that requires Launceston College to close the following procedures apply:

  1. Before College any announcement of school closure will be communicated via the College website latest news , our texting home facility and through the local radio media including Radio Cornwall, Pirate FM and Heart.
  2. If during the day the need for closure arises we will inform you through both text and the College website latest news. Where we have received parental confirmation that your child should either walk home, walk to a friends or wait in College this will be followed. Where we have yet to receive confirmation we will keep students in College until contact has been made with home to establish what action is to be taken.
