Confirmed Positive Case of Coronavirus - Information for Rang 5 parents

14th Oct 2020


Following on from my communication earlier this evening, I can confirm that a child in Rang 6 has tested positive for Covid-19.  

I have consulted with the PHA this evening and they have advised that all pupils in Rang 5 should remain at home tomorrow, to facilitate a 'deep clean' of the Rang 5/6 classrooms and toilets. This enhanced cleaning process will take place tomorrow. This advice applies to pupils in Rang 5 only and all siblings in other classes should attend school as normal tomorrow.  

Pupils in Rang 5 should return to school as normal on Thursday.  

Múinteoir Eugene will be uploading activities for Rang 5 on Seesaw tomorrow. Please try to log into your child's Seesaw account tonight. If you have any trouble logging in, Eugene will be available via e mail on from 9am-4pm tomorrow.  

The children also have their homework folder activities, reading books and Maths Facts in a Flash to be getting on with.   I was teaching the Rang 6 class on Friday and in line with the PHA advice, I will also be self isolating for the next two weeks. I will be available every day from 9am-4pm via e mail on  

I thank you for your support and cooperation at this time and send the best wishes of everyone in our school community to the family who has been affected by the Covid-19 virus. Please respect their privacy at this time.  

Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
