Advice for parents and information from the HSE
The Department of Education and Skills published information to assist schools in the process of reopening schools for all students at the end of August 2020. All that information is attached below.
Much of what they suggest was in our thinking as we planned for the reopening of the school year and I am confident that we will be able to reopen our school safely and with minimal disruption. Certainly, the resources allocated to all schools will be welcome and fully utilised. There will be, as always, a backup plan in case of any difficulty.
Full details will be published towards the end of next week to allow everyone to be adequately prepared for the much anticipated return to school. There will be some noticeable changes, as we accommodate the social distancing requirements and the need to minimise contact/exposure to large groups, but I am sure that as a community we will rise to the challenge.
Much more detail is to follow in the coming weeks. Please keep an eye on this website, where this information will be posted.
Looking forward to seeing you in person soon.
The new prefabs on the Craddockstown site are nearing completion and will be ready for the start of the new term.
Progress on our permanent home is very evident, as the ground floor is now visible. Much more detail, and pictures, will be posted next week.
