Covid-19 Updates for Parents and Students

Dear parents/guardians,

The Government website has been updated www.gov.ie/backtoschool with new materials for parents and for students.

The Minister has asked the important information from the Department and the HSE with regard to returning to school is shared with all parents. Links to each of these are below.

These are designed to be age-appropriate and have been developed in consultation with children and young people and parents.

The key message is that where there is a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 amongst school staff or pupils, schools will be required to follow the public health instruction of the HSE Public Health.

The re-opening of schools will require everyone to adjust and get used to new arrangements and routines. This change of culture won’t happen overnight and will take a bit of time in the initial re-opening period to get fully established and embedded into the daily operation of our school.

 

We look forward to working with you on our new journey, together we will succeed.

Wishing you and your son/daughter all the best for the coming year.

Deirbhle Quinn

Principal
