Emergency School Closure

Posted by: | Posted on: March 12, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am confirming the school is closed tomorrow 13/03/20 and will reopen on 30/03/2020. I will update you of any further developments by text, email and the school website, www.scmj.ie

Over the next number of weeks please read to your children, listen to your children reading, keep them active and minimise screen time.

The online learning resource company, Twinkl, used regularly by teachers in our school, has offered free access to all parents for the upcoming month. This will allow parents unlimited access to every single resource for every single curriculum subject from junior infants to sixth class.

Setting this up is really easy to do – go to www.twinkl.ie/offer and enter the code IRLTWINKLHELPS.

I am also attaching an advice sheet from the Department of Education and Skills, offering advice to parents on how to reassure children during this worrying time.

On behalf of the staff, Board of Management and myself, I wish you and your family well for the coming weeks.

Le gach dea ghuí,

Caitlin O’Connor
