Dear Parents/Carers, 

Please find this week’s updates and reminders below:

School Office

If you need to visit the School office, please come to the lobby outside main reception and ring the bell next to the hatch.  Please only come into the main reception area if you are signing in to help, or attending a meeting. 

Useful forms such as Parent helper packs, consent to administer medicine etc. are also available in the lobby and we can help you through the hatch.  

We will also sign children in and out for you.  

Sickness & Diarrhoea

We have high levels of sickness & diarrhoea in School at the moment.  If your child has sickness or diarrhoea, they must only return to School when they are at least 48 hours clear from the last bout of sickness and/or diarrhoea.  

Lost Property

We have a lot of unclaimed jumpers, coats, cardigans etc. in the lost property in both the Infants and the Juniors.  Please come and check if any of this belongs to your child.  The Infant lost property is situated just inside the front entrance to the Infants and just by the Junior Hall for the Juniors.
