All schools to remain closed today

Fri, 10 Mar 2023

Island Schools and UCM will remain closed today (Friday 10 March).

Residents are advised that the travel conditions this morning are difficult. This is expected to improve from mid-morning, but difficult conditions will return late afternoon when temperatures drop again causing ice. There are amber warnings in place at the current time for snow and ice.

Please travel with care if you must make a journey, and if possible travel later in the morning once the conditions have improved.

For live travel updates visit the Isle of Man Transport and Welcome Centre Facebook pages. 

Main routes are clear, but some estates and secondary routes remain difficult to pass. This presents a risk of cars sliding, blocking roads, and of slips, trips or falls.  

Whilst some schools and areas may be accessible, the safety of pupils and staff travelling to and from school across the Island is of paramount importance.

Estates and bus routes will continue to be cleared through the morning.
