The school will no longer close at 12:00 on Friday 23rd February and Tuesday 6th March.
Regulations regarding the reporting of Child Protection concerns have been given a new legal status.
The Department of Education & Skills had instructed that schools should close for the children on two half days in order that the staff be trained in the area of reporting these concerns. The Department has recently informed us that schools can now close for a full day instead of two half days.
We have decided to take this option and close for a full day on Monday the 5th of March.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused however we feel that a full day closure is easier for parents/guardians than two half days.
Ms. Mary O'Riordan
