Letter to parents

06-January-21

Dear parents/guardians,

On behalf of all the teachers and staff I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year. I hope you all had a chance for relaxation and family time during the Christmas period.

As you are probably aware the Department of Education in conjunction with the HSE and NPHET have decided not to reopen schools at this time due to the high number of Co-vid 19 cases that exist throughout our country. This is to reduce the amount of interaction between people as much as possible.

Each teacher in the school has earlier this year set up a Seesaw online platform to allow them to remotely contact and engage with the children. This will ensure a continuation of work as far as is possible.

While we totally understand that this situation is far from ideal, we would encourage each child to engage with the online learning as far as possible. Of course the most important thing at this time is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone but part of this is to establish a routine which will allow the children to continue to learn.

The school will be open next Monday morning to allow parents to collect books that are necessary to continue with classwork.

Each child’s books will be in a bag with the child’s name on it.

To facilitate social distancing as best we can we would ask that parents calling to 2nd,3rd,4th ,5th and 6th classes would approach the class from the external classroom door. These doors are best accessed from the side of the building near the large car park and from the yard that the children play on each day at the back of the school. If the day is fine the children’s books will be left on a table outside the classroom door. In the event of a wet day we would ask that only one person would enter the room at any time. For parents going to 1st class they should enter and exit via the main exit door opposite the classroom. Parents going to Senior Infants can enter the class as normal and can exit via the fire door in the class. Parents going to Junior Infants can enter and exit as normal.

We would really appreciate if parents could call between the following times using their surname initial as a guide as to when to call e.g. M for Murphy.

Families surnames beginning with A-G from 10am-11am.

Families surnames beginning with H-O from 11am-12noon.

Families surnames beginning with P-Z from 12noon -1pm.

This time last year Co-vid 19 wasn’t even on our radar but thankfully there is now light at the end of the tunnel with people being vaccinated. However in the meantime it is imperative that we all continue to keep our distance and observe the public health guidelines.
