Dear parents and guardians,
As you will probably of heard yesterday evening in the announcement by the Taoiseach, all children in Junior Infants, Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd class can return to school on March 1st.
This is fantastic news for the children and we are looking forward to welcoming them all back.
Over the next few days we will be preparing for their return and once we have been able to analyse the new Department of Education procedures and protocols I will email you again with a plan for Monday.
I do not foresee that there will be a huge amount of adjustments from our current school response plan for dealing with COVID 19 and a lot of the timetable in terms of drop off times and collections will likely remain unchanged.
Once we have had an opportunity to examine the latest information we received from the DES (which has only just been emailed to us) we will let you know more.
For the time being please continue with the fantastic engagement online and we will hopefully be able to give you more definitive clarity about next week in the coming days.
