Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Welcome back to our pupils in Junior and Senior Infants, First and Second Class.

Pupils in 3rd to 6th Class will return to school on March 15th. In the meantime, they will continue to engage with remote learning.

I  have attached our Covid-19 Response Plan for the Safe and Sustainable Operation of Presentation Primary School and our Covid -19 Policy Statement. These have been reviewed and updated.  Also attached is an advice sheet on returning to school which you may find useful. I ask that you take the time to read through them to ensure you are familiar with our procedures and protocols.

I have attached a letter from the Minister of Education Norma Foley. To ensure our school remains safe, Ms. Foley is asking:

  • That we continue to abide by all social distancing guidance and stay home apart from essential journeys.
  • That we do not gather in groups and linger outside school at drop off and collection times.
  • That parents/guardians avoid organising playdates or home visits.

With kind regards

Anne Marie O Mara

Dropping off and Collecting Pupils

As we continue with Level 5 of the Plan for Living with Covid-19 and in the interest of the health and safety of the whole school community, parents/guardians are asked to wear a face mask while on school grounds. Please also inform friends/family members who may be collecting/dropping off your children. Your support in this matter is crucial to our efforts to keep the school safe for all.
