A thuismitheoirí agus a chairde / Dear parents and friends,

I am sure you have all heard in the recent news that our pupils in Naíscoil - Rang 3 are to return to school for two weeks between 8-19 March. The pupils in the Naiscoil will attend between 9am - 12 noon as usual, while pupils in Rang 1-3 will attend between 9am - 2pm (with slightly staggered start times as we had in the first term & designated drop off / pick up points. Thus, Ranganna 2 & 3 will start school at 8.55am, Rang 1 at 9am. Rang 1 may be collected from the yard door at 1.55 pm, while Rang 3 will be collected from the wooden gate into the school garden and Rang 2 will be collected on the right hand side of our canteen at 1.55 pm).

Remote learning will continue for Rang 4-7 during this 2 week period from 8.50am - 2pm. School will be open for the full week 8-12 March and for the Monday, Tuesday and Friday of the week 15 - 19 March. (Please check with our website calendar). Supervised Learning will be available for pupils from Rang 4-7 during that fortnight, but there may be a cap on numbers as our available staff for supervision is severely limited with the return of Naíscoil - Rang 3 to normal class activity. Therefore, pre-booking on the form that will be issued the week in advance is essential. School dinners will only be available to pupils in Rang 1-3 during that fortnight. (We are awaiting further confirmation regarding the continuation of Free School meal entitlement during this period.)

          Remote learning will resume for pupils in Naíscoil - Rang 3 between 22 - 31 March, and this will continue to be the case for pupils in Rang 4-7. Supervised Learning will also be available in school for all eligible pupils, subject to pre-booking, from 22 -31 March.

        If you are a key worker and wish to register your child(ren) for in-school supervision for next week, please fill in the Google form on the link below before 12 noon tomorrow, Friday 26th February.

All pupils must bring break and a packed lunch for the days they will be in school for Supervised Learning (this includes snack for the Naíscoil pupils) as no food service is available in school during this Lockdown period. All pupils will be supervised within the main school building during this period.

Le meas,

Aingeal
