Covid-19 Update

12th March 2020

Update:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have been informed that school closures will take effect from 6pm today, meaning that the school will be closed tomorrow. This closure will remain in place until 29th March. Schools are scheduled to re-open on Monday 30th. If there are any changes with this, we will inform you as soon as possible.

All teachers will be emailing you with work for your child(ren) to do at home. We will also send work packs home with the children today. We are providing work for the children but there is no pressure to complete it all. Please do as much as you feel the children are able to do. Please see some website recommendations below also for activities/additional work.

If your child is absent today, feel free to drop in to the school office between 2pm and 3pm today to collect work packs. Again, there is no obligation to do this as there will be work emailed to you.

For additional advice from the Department of Education, please see https://www.education.ie/covid19/.
