Important News. Class Activities and CallsPosted on 27th April 2020
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Just a short note with respect to the ongoing school closure, which as you may know, will be at least to May 5th and most likely beyond this date. We remain very hopeful that we will return to school before the end of term. It may a shorter day or alternate days for different classes, but as soon as it is safe and possible, we look forward to welcoming the pupils back to school. In the interim, don’t forget about the School Hub on RTE2, this is a lovely supplement or alternative to teacher’s suggestions.
Unfortunately, the sacraments of Confirmation and Communion remained postponed but Fr. Gleeson will arrange a new date as soon as it permissible to do so.
As we said last week, it has been a very unfortunate interruption to the final term as St. Kevin’s students for our Sixth Class pupils. This is usually a time that our senior scholars enjoy the most, from those receiving Confirmation, to our football tournaments, Fun-Day, Sports Day, the ‘hoodies’ and the ‘buddies’, the Ovaca trip, graduation and so much more. However, we have your ‘hoodies’ (ordered and we await delivery) and we are working to reorganise as much as possible, but most importantly, you will see each other soon, when it is safe. You will leave with great memories which we will celebrate as soon as we can.
Class Activities and calls
Again, from today Monday, 27th April, school work and activities, specific to each class, will be located in Classes 2019/2020. If you click on this link and then select the appropriate class from the drop down menu, activities and tasks, assigned by the class teacher, can be found here. A number of teachers have also included an email address in these posts, so please feel free to forward any work, questions or queries to the teacher’s address e.g. 2nd Class email@example.com. The teachers would be delighted to hear from you. Many teachers have also been in touch, if you would like to speak with the teacher again, please just email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can organise a time that suits you.
Please remember, these are only suggestions. We do not expect a day at home to run like a day at school. These activities are a suggestion, not a prescription. We also appreciate, that for many families, there are different priorities. It is simply there if it can be of help to you, to offer structure and support rather than burden you.
Glanmore Foods will continue to provide food parcels to families in our school community over the coming weeks. Should you wish to avail of this support, please contact me, in full confidence, at email@example.com and arrangements for delivery can be put in place. Ideally if you could let me know by the Friday preceding the Tuesday when the parcels are delivered. My thanks for your understanding.
If there is some way in which we might be able to help you further, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (even to request a phone-call) and we will do our best to assist, support and encourage you and the young children and pupils in your care. We would also like to assure you that the school has been professionally sterilised – all surfaces and materials in the classrooms and ancillary areas. We will ensure safe is as safe as can be when the pupils return. As always, if we can be of support, please be in touch, we are always happy to hear from you and help in any way we can. Thank you.
