Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you all enjoyed a good Christmas and kept safe and healthy during the holiday.

Scoil Treasa opens tomorrow at 9.05 / 9.10 am.  We look forward to welcoming the pupils back in.  Hopefully we will have a good term ahead.  It will be difficult at times, but the boys and girls have been great in the first term and I'm sure they will do the same this year.

Thank you to those parents who have been in touch for different reasons.  A number of pupils will be absent, I wish them all a speedy recovery and hope to see them back in school when they are fully well again.

We also have a number of staff who will be out for the next few days.  I wish them well also and look forward to them returning to their job soon.

A few reminders:

1.  Please wrap up well, extra layers of clothes will help. School will be cold these days with ventilation very important.

2. We received funding from D.E.S. on December 17th to purchase filters etc.  We will be working on that this week.

3. We ask all pupils to continue  wearing  masks/ face coverings as we did before Christmas holidays.

4.  Please do not send children to school if they have any  Covid-19 symptoms.

5. If your child is a household contact, they must stay at home also.

6. When/ if  a child displays symptoms in school we will contact you immediately and ask you to collect. 

7. I will notify you if there is a positive case in your child's pod(group) in class.

Teachers will have their mobile numbers blocked for reasons of confidentiality
    Please note:
    1. If, for any reason, parents wish to have two seperate parent / teacher meetings we can arrange this for you.  There will be extra slots.  Please contact your child's class teacher.
    2. Our S.E.T. ( Special Education Teachers) will be available to speak with parents also if needed, otherwise the class teacher will inform you of your child's progress in special education.
    3. Meetings will be scheduled every 10 minutes.
    4. Parents who wish to speak to me on any school  matter , please ring the office at 4513141.  If I am unavailable, I will get back to you.
