Contingency Arrangments:
In the event of school days being lost due to unforeseen school closures, the contingency arrangements may include either or both of the following:

1. The Easter Break may be reduced by up to 3 days with the school remaining open up to and including Wednesday 12 th April.
2. The summer break may be reduced to make up for lost time. Parents will be given timely notification if these contingency arrangements need to be implemented.


New Primary Language Curriculum Staff Training Day
In the course of the school year 2016-2017 the Department of Education plan to schedule whole school staff training on the new primary language curriculum. This will necessitate one full school day closure. Date yet to be decided. Parents will be given adequate notice.


Please Note:
Parents are actively discouraged from taking holidays outside the above schedule. The school is obliged, by law, to inform the Educational Welfare Services of Tulsa when a pupil is absent for a total of 20 school days in one school year, or where there is concern about a pupil’s attendance. There is a direct link between school attendance and pupil progress. Your co-operation with maintaining high attendance and punctuality is greatly appreciated. We look forward to another great year together.
