MONDAY 1ST, MARCH – JUNIOR INFANTS–2ND CLASS RETURNING
We were all delighted to hear the announcement from Taoiseach Michael Martin last night. Junior Infants, Senior Infants, 1st class and 2nd class will all return to school on Monday 1st March.
When we return, we want to keep the school open until the end of the year. To do this successfully, we will once again need the full co-operation of the school community. The following rules will apply. Please consider them carefully.
- A temperature of 38 degrees Celsius or more
- Any other common symptoms of Covid-19 – a new cough, loss or changed sense of taste or smell, shortness of breath or an existing breathing condition that has become worse.
- Been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.
- Been living with someone who is unwell and may have Covid-19.
- Other uncommon symptoms of Covid-19, such as sore throat, headaches or diarrhoea
- Returned from another country in the last 14 days.
- Parents and guardians must wear masks and follow public health advice during drop and collection times.
Parents are not to congregate in or around the school campus. Please ‘DROP AND GO’ and ‘COLLECT AND GO’. School drop off and collection is not a social gathering and any parents lingering in or around the campus will be asked to leave by members of staff. We must work together to keep our community safe and our school open.
