  • We understand the concern for parents when a child has a cough or a cold and whether or not to send that child to school. Lots of children will present with a cough over the coming months. For the vast majority of children their attending school is not an issue. Some children will present with coughs on a regular basis and may have done so over the past number of years. While a cough is a symptom of Covid 19 parents should use their own initiative in deciding whether it requires a phone call to a doctor or whether it is just typical and normal for the child. Acting Chief Medical officer, Dr Ronan Glynn , stated that the latest international guidance is that child to child and child to adult transmission of Covid 19 in schools is uncommon. His letter to parents has been posted on our website.
  • Should a case of Covid 19 arise in the school we will be guided by the HSE in terms of what protocols to put in place and that would include whether other parents need to be informed or not. Every situation will be different and we will follow HSE direction as they arise.
  • We would ask parents to maintain social distancing when waiting outside the school gates and to wear masks if you are unable to keep a safe distance from other parents.
  • Please make sure that your child has a rain jacket or coat coming to school each day as we will make every effort to go outside at break times even in light rain.
  • Letters were sent to some families last week seeking updated phone and email contacts. Can you please return the form if you received one. We are updating our database and are missing email addresses for a number of families.
  • Please make sure that your child’s lunch is easily opened and accessible for the child. Please do not send in items that require adult help such as oranges that are difficult to peel.
  • Speech and Drama lessons begin this week for 1st, 2nd, 3rd ,4th and Solas classes. Deirdre Browne will teach the classes initially until Kathleen Lambe returns later in the year.
  • If you keep your child at home any day please write a brief note in the homework diary or a brief note to Infant teachers explaining the absence on the child’s return to school. We have to record attendance and absences for Tusla and must have reasons listed for any absence. Even if you have phoned the office we require the absence explained in writing.
