A reminder that your child should not come to school if they have any of the following symptoms:
- A fever (high temperature of 38 degrees Celsius and above)
- A cough (this can be any cough, not just a dry cough)
- Shortness of breath or breathing difficulties
- Loss of change to your sense of smell and taste
If in doubt, please keep your child out!
General COVID-19 Information to Note:
- Contact your GP if your child shows any Covid-19 symptom(s)
- If your child is sent for testing, then the whole family needs to restrict movements until the test results are received, this includes all school going siblings.
- If the test is negative, siblings may return to school. The child with symptoms must self isolate until 48 hours symptom free and clinically well enough to return to school.
- If the test is positive, the child will continue to self-isolate until they are 5 days fever free and it has been 10 days since they first displayed symptoms.
- With a positive case, the HSE takes over directly and the school must respond to the directions given. Should there be any situation where a close contact is identified in the school, the HSE will contact you directly.
- Please know that in line with GDPR, the school will at no stage identify or discuss any positive cases identified. Please be aware that this is a Department directive. As a school, we will continue to respond to any DES and HSE directives and guidelines given. We appreciate your continued support on this moment.
- Masks must be worn by all visitors entering our school yard and premises.
- If dropping and collecting pupils, please leave the school grounds and disperse quickly. We continue to have a number of high risk members within our school community.
