The Drop Off scheme has been in place for a number of weeks now. We have a strong group of volunteers who are out there in the morning, helping to run the program and making sure our children reach the school’s door safely.
We have reviewed current operating systems and have decided to introduce some changes that will be effective from Tuesday 27th January:
Junior Infants will be included in the program. That means parents of children attending JI classes can let one of our volunteers help the child to step out from the car and assist the child into the school.
All children using the Drop Off will be entering the school via the main entrance. Note, if the child attending Senior Infant /1st / 2nd class comes to school before 8.30 he/she still has to use the yard entrance, once it’s re-opened, and needs to be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Parents using the Drop Off can stop the car closer to the main entrance corridor to facilitate smooth and quick turnaround.
Here are some general reminders:
Drop Off program runs from 8.30-8.40am exclusively.
Citywest ETNS volunteers wear YELLOW safety jackets.
NEVER leave your child with an adult not wearing a hi-vis jacket or with Scoil Niamh Drop Off staff who wear blue jackets.
When coming to the Drop Off zone, stop the car, let the child out promptly and leave immediately to allow others avail of the service.
If any JI parents wish to help with morning rota, please sent an email to the PA at firstname.lastname@example.org giving your name and contact number.
