If at any time, you wish to speak with your child's class teacher or the principal, please make an appointment through the school office. As well as sending home notes, our school operates a text-a-parent system and you will receive texts from us form time to time about different things happening in the school. We would ask you to check with your child each day to see if they have any note from the school.
The cost of running the school i.e., insurance, heating, electricity, telephone, etc., (as with all schools) far exceeds the grants provided by the Department of Education & Skills. The school has a very active Parents' Committee and they run some fund raisers during the year. Your support would be greatly appreciated.
The HSE visit the school each year and children in Junior Infants receive the MMR and 4 in 1 vaccination.
Permission forms are issued to parents from the HSE through the school.
Head lice are regular visitors in all schools! We would ask that you check your child's hair regularly. If you find that your child has head lice, lotions and shampoos are readily available from local pharmacies to treat the problem. Please report it to the school, so we can alert parents and ask them to check their children (it goes without saying that no names will be used if we have to alert parents of an outbreak of head lice.)
We would stress the importance of the school being notified of any specific medical needs, allergies, etc., that your child may have. This information will be kept in a differentiation folder in the child's classroom so that all school staff will be aware of the child's medical needs.
