We are hoping to re-open our school safely, in line with current guidance and recommendations on 31st August 2020. We have been working on our plan for the safe reopening of the school for some weeks now. Please see the  DES COVID-19 Response Plan for the safe and sustainable reopening of Primary and Special Schools above.  The Response Plan gives details of

  • Physical preparation, signage, hand sanitiser stations,
  • Advice, procedures and training for the safe return to working in the school for all school staff and pupils
  • General and specific advice on how all pupils, staff, parents and visitors will prevent the spread of the virus

Please also see our COVID-19 Policy Statement above. Our Board of Management will keep you informed as to the progress of our re-opening plans and provide you with the information required by you to play your part in safely re-opening the school.

We are really looking forward to welcoming our children back to school on August 31st and will be doing all that we can to ensure that the return to school is a safe and enjoyable experience for the children.
