Junior and Senior Infants: 9.00a.m. - 1.40p.m. All other classes: 9.00a.m. - 2:40p.m. ________________________________________________________________ COVID-19 Action plan: Pupils must enter the school through the school gate which is signposted, proceed straight to their classroom through the fire door, sanitise their hands and take up their seat.
Each class fire door is used to enter and exit morning and evening. These fire doors are clearly signposted with the room number. Fire doors will be open from 8.40am in the morning. Pupils are not allowed on the school grounds before this time.
In the evening time, we have 5 minutes of staggered exits from the school. Parents are asked not to congregate outside the school and to adhere to social distancing of 2 metres.
Break times will be staggered. Junior break is for pupils in Junior Infants –2nd class. Senior break is for pupils in 3rd -6th class. This is to ensure adequate space in the yard for each “class bubble”. •Junior small break: 10.35-10.45am / Senior small break: 10.50-11am. •Junior Big Break: 12-12.30pm Senior Big Break: 12.35-1.05pm Pupils will be given an opportunity to eat their lunch in the classroom for 5 minutes prior to going out on the yard. ________________________________________________________________ Junior and Senior Infant children who have bus tickets will be collected at 1.40p.m. No children in Juniors or Seniors are permitted to remain in school for the final hour. It is the responsibility of parents to make arrangements for their collection. The Department of Education sets the final hour for teacher preparation. If your child is being collected by an adult other than their parents, it is best practice to inform the teacher of the change. We do not allow children to be collected by an adult if they are unknown to us on child protection grounds.
