AFTER more than 200 schools across Suffolk closed due to bad weather yesterday (Monday), all bar three are back open this morning.
Some schools are opening at 10am or allowing students a later registration window to ease the pressure on travel time.
Among the schools that are closed are Meadow Primary School in Lowestoft, which is shut because of heating problems.
Abbot’s Hall Primary School in Stowmarket and Stoke-by-Nayland Primary School are also closed in Suffolk.
St Mary’s Primary School in Lowestoft is opening at 10am, while Benjamin Britten High School in Lowestoft is opening as normal and Year 11 GCSE exams will be going ahead as planned.
With above-freezing temperatures, the difficult conditions in many parts of Suffolk are starting to clear and the roads are relatively trouble free this morning.
