Dear Parents ,
In the current climate of uncertainty, the Department of Education and Skills appreciates that students, staff and parents are being affected in various ways by the Covid-19 pandemic.
We are equally aware that there are many students and parents in Ireland for whom English/Irish is not their first language.
With this in mind, the Department of Health and the HSE have produced Covid-19 resources in a range of languages other than Irish and English which you can access below:
The languages currently available are Chinese, Italian, Spanish, French, Arabic, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Latvian and Lithuanian.
It is vital that this information reaches the students and parents who need it most. Given the important role you play in your own communities around the country, we are asking you to share this information in a way that is appropriate to your school community.
The site above will continue to be updated with more resources, so we encourage you to check it regularly.
We hope this information will be useful and that it will make important information more accessible to everybody.
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are in unprecedented times. The announcement to close the schools at such short notice came as a shock to all of us. I know that the teachers and LInda the Home School Liaison Teacher has have been working hard to give you guidelines on how to work with your children over the next couple of weeks. Take things easy and slowly. Don't try to tackle everything all at once. Remember that the children were due to be on holidays on Monday and Tuesday of next week in any event so 'school work' can begin in earnest on Wednesday. Use the time to read and play board games with your children. Try to enjoy it. Let them help you make the dinner and maybe learn to cook and bake a cake. They might even do a bit of hoovering!!!
The main point of all of this is that you and your family remain safe during this difficult time. We are greatly reassured that the children will get through this with out too much difficulty. Young children are vectors not victims. Even if they do get the CoVid 19, their symptoms are generally very mild. But we know that they can transmit to each other and to their loved ones, who might be vulnerable to a more serious reaction. Closing the schools is a really serious measure taken by the government, because of the possible consequences of the pandemic. In order for this measure to be effective, it is really important that the children are not mixing with each other. It is a time for social distancing.. Avoid situations where the children will be playing together or interacting. They will want to be with their friends. This is not the time to allow for that to happen. What parents do now in the community by keeping their children apart from other children will be critical in slowing down the spread of this virus.
It is very important that as parents you support this measure and continue to ensure that the children follow the hygiene rules of the HSE.
Best of luck over the next couple of weeks . We will be in touch.

This too shall pass!
