Covid-19 and return to school January 2022
We're all delighted that the schools have remained open and we look forward to things settling down over the next few weeks.
However, please remember the following public health advice:
If your child has symptoms of the virus, or lives in a household where someone has received a positive or “detected” test result either on a PCR or an antigen test then they should not attend school. If staff members or children have been told by the HSE that they are a close contact of a case of Covid-19, they need to adhere to the advice on the HSE website in relation to restricted movements and testing.

A huge thank you to all the children in 3rd-6th classes who are being so co-operative in wearing masks and keeping each other safe.
While we have HEPA filters and CO2 monitors in all classrooms, good ventilation still continues to be a priority so windows and doors will be open. Please ensure that your child is warmly dressed and brings a coat, hat and gloves (named!).
The school's Lead Worker Representative this year is Anne Lawlor, helped by Tara Byrne and Gretchen Dawson.
