The Dept of Education and Skills has announced that all schools and colleges are to close from 6.00pm this evening until 29th March, reopening on Monday 30th March. All students have been assigned work for the next while and they have been requested to make sure their school email account is active. They have been instructed to bring books home this evening but in the event of them not being able to bring them all home, arrangements have been made for collection tomorrow, Friday: 5th & 6th year students 9.00 to 11.00 and 1st, 2nd and 3rd years 11.00 to 1.00.
3rd and 6th year students have been told that any contingency plans for oral and practical examinations will be relayed to them as soon as the SEC issues them.
Schools are being closed to prevent spread of Covid-19 and in that regard I would ask students to continue to practice hygiene protocols and to avoid meeting in large groups and keep physical contact to a minimum. The school will keep parents updated via the school app and website. Wishing you all well over the coming weeks.
