Dear Parents and Guardians,

The Board of Management has agreed to stagger the start date of the new school term over the first 2 days. This will allow us to teach the new Covid procedures in a smaller group setting so that all pupils are aware of how to be as safe as possible at school. The split is being done by surnames.

Surnames starting A-Mac: Start school on Wednesday 26th of August and do NOT come in on Thursday 27th.
Surnames starting Mag-Z (including Mc surnames): Start school on Thursday 27th of August and do NOT come in on Wednesday 26th.

All pupils will come together as a whole class group on Friday 28th of August.

As outlined on the message sent yesterday, please ensure you adhere to the new dropping off and picking up protocols.

Please visit the school website at here for copies of all messages related to the re-opening of school.

We are all looking forward very much to welcoming back the pupils for the new school year.

Kind regards,

Deirbhile Savage
Class Teacher
