I hope you and your families are enjoying these lovely bright summer days.

I wish to remind you of the following:

  • It is very important that parents/guardians do not congregate at or near the school at drop off and collection times.
  • Communication with the school should take place by phone or email.

Pupils must not attend school if displaying any symptoms of Covid-19.

  • A fever (high temperature – 38 degrees Celsius or above).
  • a new cough – this can be any kind of cough, not just dry.
  • shortness of breath or breathing difficulties.
  • loss or change in your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Pupils must not attend school if:

  • they are close contacts of a person with COVID-19, are awaiting a test or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
  • they are identified by the HSE as a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19 or if they live with someone who has symptoms of the virus
  • they have travelled outside of Ireland; in such instances parents are advised to contact the school and to follow latest Government advice in relation to foreign travel.

Parents/Guardians are advised to cooperate with any public health officials and the school for contact tracing purposes and follow any public health advice in the event of a case or outbreak in the school

Doors will open at 8.50am and school finishes as follows:

  • Junior/Senior Infants 1.30pm
  • First/Second Classes 2.20pm
  • Third/Fourth Classes 2.25pm
  • Fifth/Sixth Classes 2.30pm

Please avoid collecting children early except when necessary e.g. medical appointment etc.

Dropping off and Collecting Pupils

As we continue with 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.
