To all members of our school community.
We hope that you are well and enjoying the summer.
In advance of returning to school in September the DES has published a suite of documents which you will find below. As stated clearly, by Minister Foley, each school is different and a one size fits all approach to planing for return to school will not work.
In the coming days we will study the advice in these documents and put in place a robust return to school plan with the aid of the resources committed to by the DES. In the interim if you have any questions or suggestions having considered the documents please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you in advance for your patience and support as we endeavuor to plan a return to school in the safest possible way under the guidelines below.
- Letter to teachers/staff from Minister Foley
- Letter to parents/guardians from Minister Foley
- Road-map for reopening schools
