Return to School


March 12th 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The school will be open next Monday March 15th for all pupils in all Classes. We look forward to having all of our pupils back in school once more. We hope to put Distance Learning aside for the time being. It will take a concerted effort by all of us to keep everybody safe & keep our school open.

Below are some important points to be aware of:

  • The same routines will apply at arrival time (8:50am – 9:10am) & dispersal time (1:30pm-1:40pm Infants) & (2:30pm-2:40pm Rang 1-6). Pupils should enter & leave the school via their designated gate & door.

  • The school bus will run as usual.

  • A Return to Education Form must be completed for every child on or before his/her return to school. This form must also be completed whenever a pupil returns to school following any absence. The form was emailed to all families in February & is also available to download from the school website. It may be submitted electronically or on paper.

  • Parents are reminded that mask-wearing & maintaining social distance at the school gates are strongly advised by the HSE. Congregating at or near the school is potentially dangerous for all concerned.

  • Please do not send children to school if they are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Please do not send children to school if they are close contacts of a person with COVID-19, are awaiting a test or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Please do not send children to school if they are identified by the HSE as a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19 or live with someone who has symptoms of the virus.

  • Please do not send children to school if they have travelled outside of Ireland; in such instances parents are advised to consult & follow the latest Government advice in relation to foreign travel.

  • Please co-operate with any public health officials & with the school for contact tracing purposes & follow any public health advice in the event of a case or outbreak in the school.

  • The school will continue to follow all public health & hygiene advice issued to schools.

If you have any questions or need further clarification, please contact us by email or telephone & we will do our best to assist.


Le Meas,

Brian Mullins
