On Monday 25th May 2020, your child's books will be available for collection. Please see email sent from the school in relation to time and location for your collection.
Please note that it is not possible to be flexible with regard to the times. If you cannot come to the school at the appointed time, you can have another person collect your child's books. We will not be opening the school again for this purpose.
If you have books belonging to the school, please bring them with you. The book(s) should be in a bag or envelope or wrapped in a paper that has your child's name clearly written on it. A post box will be provided for parents to return these books.
If at all possible, please have just one adult per family come to the school on the day. If more in the family must come, please have everyone apart from one adult wait in the car. If this will not be possible for you, let us know in advance and we will have the books waiting in the car park so that no-one has to get out of the car.
If you applied for the loan of a digital device, you will hear the result of your application later this week. For those who are successful, you will be given a specific time to collect that at. It will be during the time given for your book collection so that you can do both in one visit.
Please bring your child's school bag with you so that you can put their books into it immediately.
Please don't touch anything else at the school.
Please stay distant from others at the school. We will have markings at every 2 metres so use those. Book distribution will go ahead, even if it is a wet day. You will not be entering the school building and may need to queue so please wear a warm coat and/or bring an umbrella. Unfortunately, we are not permitted to allow you into the building, even for a toilet stop.
Please know that the school cannot guarantee that it is safe for anyone to come to the school grounds. We are doing our best to support safety but you come at your own risk, same as you go grocery shopping at your own risk.
DO NOT COME to the school if you have had any symptoms or live with anyone who has had symptoms of Covid-19.
School staff will be wearing face coverings and gloves and will change their gloves regularly. You are welcome to wear face coverings and/or gloves. Please use the hand sanitiser available outside the building also.
We hope that this distribution of books is of support to families and we really appreciate the work of all school staff in making this possible.
*Please note that children in Infant classes do not have any books for collection. Book distribution is for children in 1st to 6th classes only, other than for those who are getting the loan of a digital device or the gift of an art supply pack - see email for details. Thanks.
