School Closure Extended.

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all keeping well at this time.

As I’m sure you are aware the Taoiseach announced on Friday that schools are to remain closed for the remainder of this academic year.  I know this is a difficult situation for you all.  Obviously it’s disappointing that the children won’t get a chance to meet up with their classmates before the end of the school year and it’s especially hard for 6th Class to end their primary school life this way.  We’ll make every effort to mark this milestone in a creative way.

From a teacher point of view there is nothing that we would like more than to get back to normal school and meet up with our classes as usual.  As this will not be possible we will continue with our online activities as best as we can for the coming weeks.  Only do what is possible and please don’t let the work be a cause of stress or anxiety in your family.

All teachers will continue to communicate with pupils.  If you or your child would like any extra help or advice just email any of us or send a message through Class Dojo and we will call or email you or your children personally.

I want to say a special well done to you and your children for the wonderful response to Active Home Week.  It was great to see such enthusiasm and activity.  Thanks to Ms. Leonard for all the organising which made the week so enjoyable and successful.

Thanks again for all your support.

Mícheál Hyland and Staff.
