Dear Parents / Guardians,
We are deeply sorry to announce at such short notice, that the school will have to close tomorrow due to Irish Water undertaking connection works and the water will be shut off for two days.
Unfortunately, Irish Water did not notify us that the water would be turned off and only confirmed this when we contacted them this morning. Due to the fact that there is no certainty that the water reserves in our tanks will last for two days and considering all of the enhanced handwashing required due to Covid-19 procedures, we have no choice but to close the school for health & safety reasons.
We have been in contact with all of the other schools in the area affected by this and they will also be closing tomorrow as a precaution.
Before midterm break in October the teachers all sent home an emergency work pack which can be used tomorrow if you choose to do so.
Once again, we know the short notice is very disruptive for parents and if this could have been avoided we would have done so.
