    • As per HSE protocols we also issue a reminder that if any child is presenting with symptoms of COVID-19 they should not attend school until 48 hours after last showing symptoms.
    • Children should not attend if they are close contacts of a person with COVID-19, are awaiting a test or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
    • Children should not attend school if they are identified by the HSE as a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19 or if they live with someone who has symptoms of the virus
    • If your child is living with someone who may have COVID-19 they must restrict their movements.
    • Children should not attend school if they have travelled outside of Ireland; in such instances parents are advised to consult and follow latest Government advice in relation to foreign travel
    • We have been asked to advise parents to cooperate with any public health officials and the school for contact tracing purposes and follow any public health advice in the event of a case or outbreak in the school.

      • Please view our updated Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) here We require each family to review to this policy in order to proceed with Google Classroom for 2020/2021 school year. The use of an online platform is part of an overall strategy to communicate with pupils / families following school closures last March. Contact with any queries. 
      • Later this week we will send a form to parents where they can respond to this AUP. A hard copy can also be requested from the school office.
    It should be noted that we are in the midst of an uncertain time, everything we decide to do and every plan we make is subject to ongoing review and change, often for reasons outside our control.
