May newsletter

This year is just flying by and the last term should be busier than ever. We plan to keep our last term as normal/crazier than ever.

Well done to everyone who is compliant in wearing masks and observing social distancing on the school grounds. Keep vigilant and don’t be offended if I remind you of the rules. We have had no cases of covid-19 in the school since Christmas. We are in this all together. Our main aim, and I’m sure it is yours also, is to keep our children safe and help the school remain open until the summer break.

Remember if your child has any of the symptoms of Covid-19 please keep them at home and get tested. Remember to error on the side of caution. If you get a positive result outside of school hours, please email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

If your child is off school, even for one day, they must sign a return to education facility declaration form. They can be downloaded from the school website under Covid resources.

Covid-19 update: Last Thursday, the school had an inspection on the “Supporting the safe provision of School.” This is something that is been done throughout the country to see if schools are compliant with all procedures to safely reopen schools. We passed with flying colours. The school staff, Board of Management, children, and parents were commended for our high standards. The full detailed report can be found here.

Enrolments: If you wish to send your child to junior infants next September please fill out an application form which can be downloaded from the website.

Communion and Confirmation: As soon as the school knows any information dates for these ceremonies, we will let parents know.

School tours: We know the importance of keeping our school tours going this year. We have had to think of some different ideas.  We will, of course, adhere to all public health guidelines and wait on Department guidance if we are allowed to go ahead. All tours will be outdoors.

Testing: Standardised testing will be happening in the school in the last two weeks of May.

Active and Arts week: We plan to run this week after the June Bank holiday weekend.

County Photos: The last day for bringing in your money for the school photographs is Friday the 7th of May. After that, you must make your order online.
