Letter to parents of incoming junior infant class 2020

Dear parents and guardians,

I hope that this letter finds you all well and that you are coping with the new situation we all find ourselves in.

As you are probably aware the meeting for parents of new children for our 2020 Junior Infant class, scheduled to take place on Thursday 7th May, has to be cancelled. As it looks like social distancing will be with us for some time, it is most unlikely that I will be in a position to reschedule the meeting. The main purpose of the meeting is to give you a sense of what our school is like and in particular how we teach your children. It also gives you a general overview of our ethos and the day to day activities of the school.

The Department of Education will decide when the school will re-open and will provide guidance to us on social distancing within the school setting. With this in mind I would like to inform you that the school has been planning a safe return for the staff and children alike and will be in a position to provide such a return when the time comes.

I will be in touch with you later this Summer with clear guidelines for your child to attend school. This will include a chance for you and your child to visit the school before their official start time. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the school on its new phone number 0863873544 or by email kilranens.ias@eircom.net

While the restrictions are in place in our school the children will not be asked to wear their uniform. When they are lifted the school will ask the children to wear their uniform once again.

We very much look forward to meeting you and your children, hopefully at the start of the new school year.

Please email the school by return stating that you have received this email.

Yours sincerely,

Eoin Ó Donnagáin
