Aberdeen City Council has a web-based system of informing parents that their child's school has been closed. The system has been set up so that both the media (BBC Radio Scotland, Northsound Radio and Original 106fm) and our internal publicity and promotions people are advised of closure details directly once a school has populated the system.
This system has buy in from all schools to ensure that the information is both up-to-date and valid. Therefore, when you check the website, you can be absolutely certain that the closure information is accurate.
Once a school has announced a closure using the system, it will appear as a top news item on the home page of the Aberdeen City Council website.
We must stress that the Electronic School Closure System is not replacing the current school help line telephone system.
