School Return to Full Capacity
I hope this message finds you safe and well.
I am delighted to let you all know that we have been given the go ahead by the Department of Education and Skills to reopen the school to all our pupils in early intervention, primary & post primary from Monday next- 1st March.
This means we no longer have to operate alternative days of attendance for our pupils.
Please contact Ashling Donegan, Boarding Manager if you have any queries about your son or daughter’s return to five day Boarding.
Please inform your bus driver that your child will be attending school every day from next Monday.
Some Important Key dates:
Monday 8th March: Post Primary section closure (JC teacher training) Early Intervention & Primary will open as normal.
Tuesday 9th March to 16th March Mock Examinations for all 6th Year Leaving Certificate & Leaving Certificate Applied pupils.
All pupils are expected to sit the mock examinations regardless of any final decision in relation to sitting the written paper or opting for calculated grades. We are waiting for clarification from the Department on these options.
Wednesday 17th March School holiday. We close for a half day on Tuesday 16th and reopen on Thursday 18th March
As all pupils return, we will need your continued cooperation to keep our school safe and open in three key areas:
• Please do not send your child to school if they are ill, particularly if they are showing any of the signs of Covid-19. Please consult with your doctor immediately and follow their advice. Please know that you will be contacted if your child becomes ill at school and that you must collect your child.
There will be no exceptions to this.
If you haven’t already completed the ‘Return to School Declaration” (See attached) please forward it without delay.
Thank you for your hard work, patience & support on the days your child was learning from home and I look forward to welcoming all our the pupils back to school on Monday.
I hope you and all your family continue to stay safe and well in the meantime.
