COVID 19 considerations in our school
I hope you and your families are enjoying these lovely bright days in June.
I wish to remind you of the following:
Pupils must not attend school if displaying any symptoms of Covid-19.
A fever (high temperature – 38 degrees Celsius or above).
a new cough – this can be any kind of cough, not just dry.
shortness of breath or breathing difficulties.
loss or change in your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Pupils must not attend school if:
they are close contacts of a person with COVID-19, are awaiting a test or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
they are identified by the HSE as a close contact of a confirmed case of COVID-19 or if they live with someone who has symptoms of the virus
they have travelled outside of Ireland; in such instances parents are advised to contact the school and to follow latest Government advice in relation to foreign travel.
Parents/Guardians are advised to cooperate with any public health officials and the school for contact tracing purposes and follow any public health advice in the event of a case or outbreak in the school
