General Notices                                                

  1. Due to TUSLA (Child and family agency) requirements, it’s important that all parent’s send in a note explaining absences (as provided for in homework diary) even though you might have phoned the school with an explanation. Try to avoid taking your children on holidays for long spells during school time as this will take them over the 20 days in absences which by law has to be reported to TUSLA.
  2. 2. All parents/visitors to the school must report to the office on entering and leaving the school to adhere to child protection regulations and must not proceed to the classroom directly for any reason. We ask you to comply with this for the safety of all children in our care.
  3. I ask parent’s not to drive into the school grounds at the start or end of the school day due to health and safety reasons and not to park in the area allocated for the school buses.
  4. School opens at 9.10 and closes at 2.50 and the school does not accept responsibility for pupils outside of these times except on school business.

This is the calendar for 2017-18 as currently planned but may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.
