Back to School
Category : Early Intervention , Post Primary , Primary
I hope all is well and you enjoyed the midterm break.
All sections of our school will re-open on Monday 22nd February.
Please check the Pupil Attendance Schedule for the days your son or daughter will attend this week.
It is your responsibility to inform the bus driver of your child’s schedule.
Please Do Not send your child to school if they are unwell or have symptoms of Covid 19, is a close contact, or awaiting a test result.
Please see the HSE guide below:
When it is OK to send your child to school or childcare
If your child is not a close contact, it is usually OK to send them to school or childcare if they:
- only have nasal symptoms, such as a runny nose or a sneeze
- do not have a high temperature and are not taking any form of paracetamol or ibuprofen – this can hide a temperature
- do not have a new cough
- do not live with anyone who is unwell and may have COVID-19
- have been told by a GP that it’s OK to go back to school or childcare if they have recently been unwell.
- have got a negative COVID-19 test result and have not had symptoms for 48 hours
- have not had diarrhoea for 48 hours
- are being tested as part of a serial testing programme, but have no symptoms and are not a close contact. For example, some children in direct provision centres
- are tested regularly because they are in a vulnerable group.
IF your child becomes unwell at school, you must be available to collect him or her. Department of Education and Skills Covid protocols do not allow a child who is unwell to return home on school or public transport.
Thank you for your support and we will continue our vigilance to keep our school community safe.
