What should you do if your kids can't go to school?
It's hard to plan for situations that are out of your control, so try and contact work as early as possible to let them know you have the children for the day.
A reasonable boss shouldn’t penalise you but they might ask you to work from home if you possibly can.
If not, they might be able to make you take unpaid leave, holiday days or work flexible hours to make up time.
