RE: Re-opening of St Joseph’s Convent National School
I hope you and your families are keeping well.
As you are aware, our school building has now been closed since 12th March due to the COVID-19 situation. We are now hoping to re-open our school safely, in line with current guidance and recommendations.
Re-opening the school safely will require the co-operation of all members of our School Community – Board of Management, School Leadership, Staff, Parents and Pupils. We will all be called on to play our part in ensuring that re-opening of the school is done in a safe manner which prevents the spread of the virus and allows the vital work of teaching and learning to proceed with as little disruption as possible.
I have been working on our plan for the safe re-opening of the school for some weeks now and have been ordering PPE, discussing changes with staff and Board of Management. In the next few days, I will update you further.
I will keep you informed as to the progress of our re-opening plans and provide you with the information required for you to play your part in safely re-opening the school.
We are really looking forward to welcoming our children back to school and will be doing all that we can to ensure that the return to school is a safe and enjoyable experience for the children. We will be in touch with you again before school re-opens.
