Letter to Parents January 11th

Dear Parents/Guardians & Pupils,

Over the coming weeks teachers will communicate with the children in a variety of different ways using Google Classroom, Email and SeeSaw.

Our collective aim is to support and help you and your children through this difficult time. We understand that every home is different, with varying levels of internet access and different times suitable for engagement, so we understand that any of us can only do our best.

As a school staff we understand that the prospect of home schooling and learning from home may cause anxiety and stress for many parents/guardians especially those trying to juggle parenting and work duties. Please note that whilst we all agree that in-school teaching and learning is best, school staff will provide for and support learning activities appropriate to each class level in so far as is possible. We ask for everyone’s patience and understanding at this time as there are challenges for parents, pupils and school staff in managing all the expectations and demands of remote learning. Please also understand that the school must also manage the availability of school staff at this time. Daily school time must be utilised by teachers for class level curriculum planning, assessment and feedback and communication during remote learning.

At this time of uncertainty in the midst of a public health pandemic our priority is that everyone remains safe and that there is a focus on maintaining physical and mental wellbeing for both adults and children. Please do not stress too much about schoolwork and keep positive and connected with your child’s teacher over the coming weeks.

Stay in touch and let us know if we can help in any other way.

Ní neart go cur le chéile.

Kind regards,

Mr. John Burke

Principal
