Return to Online Learning

Dear Parents,

I hope you are all safe and well after the Christmas break. As Covid19 numbers have escalated to all new highs since we closed for Christmas, and following the minister’s announcement, Martinstown NS will reopen for remote learning from Monday 11th January.

We will once again be using the Seesaw platform, however based on your feedback, we will be using pre-recorded lessons for Maths, English and Irish. Instruction will be given in addition to this with teachers working online to give feedback to students each day. We will also have extra support in place for students who are having difficulty with any topic. Parents will be encouraged to contact the class teacher should they require further support. Your class teacher will be in contact with you in due course to provide you with more information.
Please Note: we would ask that Seesaw be only used for the uploading of assigned work from your teacher and that pupils do not use it for uploading personal content i.e. personal photos/ videos unrelated to assigned work.

As students will need access to their books, these will be made available for collection between 1pm and 4pm on Friday 8th January. We would ask that you use the car park in the same way as the usual morning drop off. Please remain in your car, your child’s books will be placed in your boot.

We hope you all stay safe through these next few weeks, and plead with you all to fully adhere to government guidelines. It is by working together once again that we will ensure a safe return to school as soon as possible.

Stay safe,

Majella Clarke.
