School Closure update

18th Mar 2020

A recent announcement from Government officals has confirmed that schools will offically close Monday 23rd March. This situation has been rapidly changing throughout the week and we aim to provide parents with as much accurate information as possible.

Any updates regarding school closure will be given to parents when we are given offical guidance by the EA or Department of Education.

School will still open tomorrow and Friday. Tomorrows finishing times will be reduced to allow staff to prepare for closure on Friday.

Nursery-P2: 12.30 finish
P3-P4: 12.45 finish
P5-P7: 1pm finish

Friday: Normal finishing times

Please can we ask parents to pick up their packs during the allocated times. These times are on the learning plan letter posted earlier today.

Collecting these packs is absolutely essential as we have not been given guidance on how long schools will close for.

If you cannot collect your pack we are asking parents to help each other, work together and pick up packs for those who are self isolating. We need community spirit more than ever. Of course we will do our absolute best to help those who cannot.

I am available tomorrow morning after 9.30am to take any calls from parents regarding concerns, worries or questions.

If you do not send your child tomorrow or Friday you will NOT be penalised with regards an absent mark. These are exceptional and challenging times.

Many Thanks

Mrs Kelly
