Coronavirus (COVID-19) – School Update

Dear Parents,

We wish to update our school community on advice and information which has been published by the Department of Education and Skills, on the Coronavirus.

Please ensure that you take the time to read all of the important information at the following link: https://www.education.ie/en/The-Department/Announcements/information-for-schools-preschools-and-third-level-institutions-on-the-coronavirus.html

The Department of Education and Skills has received a letter from the Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health, Dr. Tony Holohan, with advice to parents of school children travelling from regions affected by Covid-19. The letter is available under the heading, ‘Chief Medical Officer advice to parents’ (at the above link).

The Department has also published hand washing guidance posters, and there is a link on the above page to the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HSPC) website which contains specific guidance for educational settings.

As this is an evolving situation we therefore ask for your support to help ensure that the school community remains well.

Yours sincerely,

Brenda Kelly

Principal
