Another week, another week at home. I hope everybody is keeping safe, practising safe social distancing and good hand hygiene as we begin to ease out of restrictions and into a relaxing of the safety measures.
- I will be in the school on Tuesday, between 12 and 2pm. I would like children in 4th and 5th to pick up their novels, which they will need for the next few weeks and 6th class to return their forms for their Passport to Secondary school which I gave them last week. Pupils can also pick up any belongings which they may have left in school or books they may have forgotten and might need.Please practice social distancing and sanitize hands when entering the classroom. Only one person in the classroom at one time, wait outside the school door, keeping 2m apart as stipulated by the HSE.
- I will also be continuing with video conferencing with pupils again this week.Your child must log in to his or her school email, and access Google Classroom, where you will find the link for the Meet. Please ensure the email and app are working correctly beforehand. If your child has lost his/ her password, please, email me and I can reset it for them.
If you are having any difficultly with this, let me know and we can try to work it out.
Meeting link will be posted in GC 10 minutes prior to Meet Time. Click on this link to join.

- Schedules for Class Work
It’s great see all the busy posts on Class Dojo and Google Classroom. Well done to everybody who submitted projects, pictures, photos and more. Just a reminder, that I do monitor these accounts and have to approve all posts! Anything inappropriate, will be deleted and not posted. Remember the “Granny Rule”- if you wouldn’t say to your granny- don’t post it online.
Please try to set up Google Classroom and Class Dojo for your child, if you have not done so, as this will allow them to send work to me and to share with their class.If you are having difficulty accessing the online material or apps, please let me know. Most resources will be posted in GC and not on the school website.
Please ensure that your child is logged in with their email (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) when they access Google Classroom and you don’t inadvertently join the class yourself or set up duplicate accounts. Your child needs to be logged into their account in order to post under their name.
