We had our first whole-school assembly this morning via Zoom, including Golden Book nominations! It was wonderful. We are all settling back into school life, albeit changed a little.
We know that many people are eager to start homework again. As we let you know in August, we will be using homework this half term to set us all up for successful distance learning, should that be needed.
Some classes will be starting on this from next week and more will join in the following week.
Please see our Reopening 2020 page for information about the next two weeks and what you can do to make this time most effective for your child. There is also a handy guide for isolation on the page, which we encourage you to print. Don't miss the important information at the top of that guide, separate to the grid.
We will publish the plan for October and for Distance Learning the week after next and will host a Zoom session on the morning of Thursday 24th September to explain it for any parent who feels that would help them. If you can't come, no worries - we will do the same as in August and put the slides up on the school website.
School phone number
Our school phone number is 01-4124060. Please make sure that you have changed the number you have for us in your phone.
Rathcoole ETNS have our old number. As a start-up school, they do not have the resources to continue answering phone calls for us.
Junior Infants on full day from Monday
Our Junior Infants have now finished induction and will attend for the full school day from Monday.
Can families with children in Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd class please be mindful of the extra families that will be arriving at the same time as you from Monday?
As everyone has fallen into a settled rhythm now, it would be easy to experience frustration as two routines are merged. Let's commit to being patient and generous of thought as we come together.
