Communicating with Parents
Telephone: 042 93 66993
Emergency Mobile: 087 622 4773 (outside of school hours or for school trips and tours)
As a Green School, we are moving away from sending notes home and we are instead communicating with Parents digitally, via the school website and the Parents Facebook page.
Our primary method of communicating with all parents is via the Komeer App.
Komeer is a secure two-way messaging service that saves schools up to 85% on their communication costs, makes parents lives easier and provides a 24/7 Child Safety Alerts service. Parents need to download the app from the App Store (iPhones) or Play Store (Android phones) and add themselves to St Francis National School group. Komeer is FREE for Schools, Clubs and Parents and we ask that ALL parents download the app to ensure they are kept up to date on school activities and events. If you do not have the App installed, Komeer messages will be sent by default to you registered email address. Click on the link below to download the app.
We also have a very active Facebook Page. This is a closed group for parents of pupils at St Francis NS, Blackrock to post questions, photos and create events specifically for the school. For legal/privacy reasons membership is limited to parents, staff and outside groups connected with the school.
Please note that staff are not permitted to respond to private messages sent to their personal telephone, email or Facebook regarding school related matters. Please refer to our Communication Policy for more information.
