Dear Parents/Guardians,

We now have confirmation that the school will remain closed until February 1st and so teaching and learning goes online from Monday next 11/01/2021. Teachers will be in touch with from Monday via Zoom, Seesaw, Aladdin Connect or Email.

Books will be ready for collection on Monday morning and each class group will be given a window of 30 minutes to collect (you will receive a text); please stand on the yellow squares outside your child’s room and someone will deliver the books to you.

Teachers will continue to work really hard with your child and it is vital that your child engages with them. We completely understand how this move to online will have a huge impact on families, we come from families ourselves! Please try to continue engaging with school, inform us if you are experiencing any difficulties and also let us know when things are going well.

Please be mindful of your own wellbeing and the wellbeing of your children; chat, take walks, play games, read books, watch some tv together, laugh and be positive; juggling work with all of this is not easy.

I hope to chat to you over the coming days and weeks. In the meantime stay safe.

Le gach dea ghuí,

Caitlin O’Connor.
