For Junior Infant Parents

Hi everyone,

I'm sure many of you have read the newsletter posted yesterday. I wanted to clarify one detail in regards to the junior infant start and finish time.

The start time for junior infants during week 1 is still 9.15am. The finish time during week 1 is still 11.30am.

The start time for junior infants during week 2 is still 9am. The finish time during week 2 is still 12pm.

One change has been made. From the 14th of September, children in both junior and senior Infants will start school at 9am and finish at 1.30pm. This will be the start and finish times for the rest of the school year. The reason for this was after the staff reviewed the whole school reopening plans, it was felt that children at infant level would not be able to manage coming through the gate independently and walking to their classrooms alone. This way a parent may accompany them to the yard and I will line the children up and we will walk as a class into the classroom. Collection of children at home time will be from the main front door of the school.

Just one last thing- make sure your child brings a raincoat to school everyday, as we will be spending time learning outdoors whenever it's possible this year.

Please tell the children that I'm so looking forward to meeting them and we are going to have great fun on Monday.

Again, if you have any concerns please get in touch with the office on 01 8325536 or email me on

See you all on Monday!
