As a school we are going to upgrade to Aladdin Connect over the next few weeks. A letter has been sent home today explaining what is involved. The letter is below for anyone who would like to follow the links:
Our school is delighted to announce that we will shortly roll

communication with parents. It enables parents to stay connected and informed
about their child’s education.

your email address or phone number has changed recently.
For further assistance please go to https://aladdin.ie/files/pdf/ParentSignUp.pdf to see the Parent Connect signup process. There
will be one link per parent. Please do not forward this text/email or share

child/children in this school.
Please note: If there are any personal concerns, or legal
provisions in place regarding giving access to Connect to any parent/guardian of
your child please contact myself or Ms Dodrill HSCL in confidence to discuss or

Before we switch off from Online Learning for the next week I would like to say some thank yous. Firstly I would like to thank our wonderful pupils for logging on to Seesaw for the last few weeks and engaging in online learning so well. It has not been easy for you but we are all so impressed with how you have stuck with it and kept at it during these difficult times.
Secondly, I would like to thank our wonderful parents who have taken on the huge task of helping your child navigate online learning. While it is not an ideal solution it is the safest solution we have at the moment so thank you for helping your child get online and for giving them a gentle nudge in the right direction.
Finally I would like to thank the teachers and SNAs in our school who have adapted so well to online learning. It has been a steep learning curve for everyone involved and I think as a school community we have all done so well over the last few weeks.
Over the next week I would encourage children to try and spend less time on screens if possible and explore other skills or hobbies that they might have. Most of all I want you all to stay safe so we will all be back in school when it is safe to do so.
When your child is unwell in school they are taken to the blue room while they wait for an adult to come and collect them. These are guidelines that were given to every school in the country by the Department of Education and Skills.
These are pictures to show your child so they know what will happen if they get sick:
Below is the list of what class lines up on what snake and at what time. We have painted dots on the snakes one metre apart for children to stand on.
Please remember that siblings come to school at the same time as the eldest sibling. Junior and Senior Infants finish at 1.25pm. Siblings from 1st Class up can leave at the same time as the eldest sibling.
Home time: 1.25pm

We would ask that parents DO NOT cross the double red line or enter the school. Don’t forget to wear a mask when dropping and collecting your child from school. Please also read the following if you have not already.
