Letter from Mr McCaul

August 2020

Dear parents/guardians,

Our Covid Committee met last week to discuss our re-opening plans (following the publication of the government’s roadmap document).  As you can imagine, there are many decisions to be made.

A meeting of local school principals and deputy principals was also held to discuss areas in which we might share a common approach.

Over the coming days, our Covid Committee will meet with representatives of the Board of Management and the Parents Association.  When all the key decisions are made, we will present the information to you and the entire school community.

For now, all the links to the Department of Education publications are listed below, as is the link to an Irish Independent video which gives a brief idea of some of the changes in store for the new school year.
