Update letter to parents 17th August


Dear parent/ guardian,

I hope you are well and safe. We are working hard to get our school safe for all staff and students. Our priority is to minimise the risk of spreading Covid -19 to the school and if introduced, to manage the risk of spread.

If a student showing any signs of Covid-19 symptoms, he/she will be removed from class and brought to the designated isolation room. Parents will be contacted immediately, asked to bring their child home and make contact with their G.P immediately.

The school is open to essential visitors only. Parents can only come to school once an appointment has been made. Only adults can attend scheduled meetings.

School canteen will operate on limited capacity. A queuing system will be in place. Further details to follow on this.

Students can bring their own lunches to school and must take home their lunchboxes, uneaten food/ drinks etc. Cups, plates, cutlery etc. will not be provided by the school.

School uniforms are to be worn by all students every day. In line with public health guidelines, we would ask you to wash uniforms regularly. Our advice is to have spare skirts, shirts and trousers at home.

The sharing of biros, pencils, calculators and equipment will not be allowed. Students must have their own personal stationary.

Breakfast club, homework club, supervised study will be available but again numbers will be reduced. A queueing system will be in place for breakfast club.

As we get more guidelines from the Department of Health, we will update all of our stakeholders immediately. Staff and students will be kept up to date and expected to adhere to all Covid -19 guidelines in our school.

Kind regards,

Patricia Lynam Margaret Corkery

Principal Deputy Principal
