Mr Lowery, Mr. Byrne and Ms. Walsh will take 80 children to take part on Wednesday
Note to those taking part:
The weather forecast is not great dress for cold and rain!
This a school day so the bus will bring you there and back to school afterwards.
NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO LEAVE THE GROUNDS EVEN IF ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT .
We hope everyone has a great day and you back plenty of medals !
With large numbers of children moving to and from their classrooms each morning and afternoon, it is very easy for collisions to occur. For this reason we ask that adults do not carry hot drinks while inside the school grounds . We appreciate your co operation in making the school a safe place for everyone.
We are closed on Thursday 18th and Friday 19th this week for our Mid Term Break.
We will also be closed on Friday Feb 26th to facilitate polling in the General Election
Author Brian Gallagher will visit our school on Feb 16th and speak to 4th 5th and 6th classes about the novel Friend or Foe. Draíocht will record the talk with 6th class to share with other schools. Children will not be identified in the video. Parents of 6th class pupils are asked to sign a permission form ( in bags today) and return it to school on Monday if they wish their child to take part.
Children’s safety in the car park is being put at risk by drivers who are driving recklessly, parking carelessly and stopping in the yellow boxes to drop off or collect their own children. Although there are footpaths in the carpark, some children have to cross between cars to get to the gate. They are often invisible to drivers and can step out without warning into the path of oncoming traffic.
Our second concern is keeping the yellow boxes clear. The boxes are not for drop offs. They are supposed to be kept clear so children and parents can access the gates safely.
We respectfully ask parents to
PARK CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU DROP AND COLLECT
DO NOT STOP IN THE YELLOW BOX
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
We appreciate your co operation in making our school safe for all children .
