Letter to Parents

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope that you and your families continue to stay safe and keep well. We wish to say a big hello to all of our pupils. We look forward to seeing them again in the near future.

Pupils received work from their teachers on the day of the school closure. This was to be for two weeks duration. We have since been informed that school will remain closed. Teachers have been working together remotely to create activities and lessons for their class. These have been made accessible on the home learning page of the school website under each class level.  The school would have been closing for Easter holidays on Friday 3rd April so no work will be prepared by teachers for what should be the Easter holiday break.  Should the school remain closed after 20th April staff will continue to plan work for the website and we will keep you updated on this.  The direction to remain closed or re-open will come from the Department of Education This situation is far from ideal and we are trying to do our best under these difficult circumstances.

We hope that the activities provided are helpful to you. We are conscious that every household is different and we try to have a balanced approach to 'distance learning'. The most important thing at this time is the safety and wellbeing of the school community. Your child may be able for all the activities or some of the activities.  At this time we can only give a general guide for each class. 

We are aware that there are members of our school community working on the frontline at this time and we wish to thank them for all that they are doing.

The school can be contacted on 061 412494 or Elaine Considine (HSCL Co-ordinator) can be contacted on 087 2101903.  Please be advised that all staff are working from home at present and the phones may not be answered at all times.  This is to ensure that school staff can carry out administration work, which still has to be done during school closure.  All staff will be on Easter holidays from Monday April 6th until Friday April 17th.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank staff and parents for their co-operation, patience and support during what is a challenging time for all. We look forward to our doors re-opening and welcoming you back in the future.

Kind Regards

Marie Meskell

Acting Principal
