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 on 29th, 30th and 31st March, if required.

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.

Please Note:

Parents are actively discouraged from taking holidays outside the above schedule.  The school is obliged, by law, to inform the National Educational Welfare Board 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.
