Second week back to school and we are delighted to say that our students have adapted well to all the new changes and rules. Its fantastic to see the school alive and buzzing again.

There will be a phased opening for children who are commencing with us for the first time in Early Intervention 1 starting from Thursday 3rd September. This will enable a parent to accompany their child for an hour on a specific morning in order to introduce their child to their new learning environment. This will help them to adjust and feel safe and secure with us in Early Intervention. Ms. Ger Lewis will contact you with a time.
All the other children will commence on Wednesday 2nd September 2020.
It is now the final week before our school community comes together again. Below is the list of return dates for Early Intervention, Primary and Post Primary. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Holy Family School.

I hope you and your family are safe and well. We are looking forward to welcoming our pupils back on the first week of September and helping them to re-engage with learning in Holy Family. Indeed, we cannot wait to see our school alive again with joyful and energetic pupils who long to be re-united with their friends and our staff.
We are currently working very hard to make sure that the school buildings and playground will be safe for all pupils, staff and essential visitors.
We want to have school seem as “normal” as possible for our pupils when they return. In line with Department of Education & Skills guidelines, we will take a balanced and common-sense approach to create awareness about COVID-19 and to do everything practical to avoid the introduction of COVID-19 into our school. Returning to school will mean some new routines and rules to keep everyone safe. I will be communicating with all parents by letter, email and via the school website with details of these new arrangements in the next two weeks. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the summer break and please find attached a letter from Norma Foley, Minister for Education for all parents. Yours sincerely, Eimear
