There has been a large increase in general viral infections among children and young people this winter. We would kindly ask that parents familiarise themselves with the most recent HSE Guidelines in relation to Viral Infections/RSV information. When your child is absent you must log in to Aladdin noting the reason for absence.
Information for parents is available by clicking:

Information regarding COVID-19 September ’22
The Department of Health and the office of the Chief Medical Officer have advised that there are no new requirements in respect of managing COVID-19.
The key messages are as follows:
Stay at home if you are unwell.
The best way to keep all viruses out of school is to stay at home if you are
unwell and until your symptoms have substantially resolved for 48 hours.
The school will continue to adhere to best practices in relation to Ventilation in School and Hand Hygiene.
I would like to thank all the parents for their vigilance in preventing the spread of Covid 19 in our school.
Take care and stay safe,
