Dear Parents / Guardians,
An announcement was made this morning (Thurs 12.03.20) by the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD of the closure of schools, pre-schools and further and higher education settings, for a period until 29 March 2020, to support efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19. This will take effect from 6pm this evening, Thursday 12 March.This is in line with the advice of the National Public Health Emergency Team.
All pupils and students, from pre-school to third level are urged to practice social distancing, and to minimise physical contact with each other, to help avoid the spread of Covid-19. This should include minimising social contact, avoiding meeting up and keeping physical space between them.
Parents and guardians are urged to support their children to maintain this approach!
We are taking an active response to this directive. Teachers will send home books/work and set some work for the children. This work will not replace the teaching but will be reinforce and revise certain areas of the curriculum. We hope this will minimise the interruption to the children’s education.
Please keep safe at this challenging time.
