Letter to parents/guardians

2020/03/12 18:34:20

Dear Parent/Guardian, As you are aware by now the school will be closed until Monday, March 30th, as instructed by the Taoiseach. Over the last few days, the school has been preparing for this possibility and putting in place measures to continue the students’ learning at home. I had spoken to exam classes and we had a staff meeting also to make sure that we were as prepared as possible for what was announced this morning. This afternoon we had a whole school assembly where all the arrangements were explained to the students. Examination year classes are the priority and teachers and students will be working online in all subjects. Any information on practicals and orals, impacted by the closure, is likely to be in the media and we will of course inform you if we are informed through the school. Non- exam years will continue to have work provided and communicate with their teachers in: English, Maths, Irish, History, Geography, Science, Business and Home Economics. If students have difficulty with the school online platform, they are advised to contact their friends who can give them the work and information. It is important that students check their emails to check in and keep in touch with their work and teachers. I would also advise students to keep a routine like the school day and when communicating with teachers to keep it within school hours. I hope we are all back in normal routine as soon as possible and in the meantime please keep safe and take care. J. Killeen Principal
