Return To School - Important Notice From Ms. Martin

Dear Parents,


Following tonight's announcement we are delighted to say that Scoil Carmel will open next Monday for all pupils. We really look forward to welcoming all the children back to face to face teaching. The teachers did their best to support the children with online teaching and remote lessons but there is no substitute for the classroom. The social interaction is vital and I know that the children will be happy to return. Health and safety must be our top priority and we need your full co-operation with all our procedures and protocols to ensure that the school can stay open.


Staggered opening times:

1st classes: 9.00am

2nd classes: 9.10am

Junior Infants: 9.20am

Senior Infants: 9.30am


It is extremely important that each class group adheres to these times and does not arrive ahead of time. We ask that you do not bring older children onto school grounds. Given that Scoil Treasa is not opening and that will cause childcare issues please ask older children to wait in the car or at least outside the gate. It is simply too dangerous to have extra children on our premises.


We remind all adults to wear masks/ face covering and to observe social distancing on school grounds. We managed to keep everyone safe for the first term and with your co-operation we will do our best to do so again. Good luck with the last few days of remote learning.
