School Closure


In the event of school closure, the website and social media will be updated and parents are urged to sign up to the School Closure Notification System, details below.

Richard Hale School is part of the Hertfordshire County Council Schools Closure Notification System which advises parents should schools have to close for any reason. This system is operated by Everbridge and parents are able to register with Everbridge to receive emails and/or texts sent by schools.

Once registered, parents can sign up for any school in Hertfordshire, primary or secondary. To register please click on this link.

This link will direct you to the ‘sign up’ page where you should click on the ‘sign up’ button and from there follow the instructions. It should take no more than five minutes to register and you can edit your information at any time should you change your mobile number or email address.

Parents are urged to sign up for this service as we will be contact Everbridge as soon as a decision is made to close for whatever reason, it may not be as obvious as heavy snow. Our website will also be updated regularly. If you registered with Everbridge last year, please check your details are still current.
