Hi all,

I hope that you are all well and managing to find something to do to pass the time! As things stand, the lock down currently remains in place until the 5th of May and schools are closed until further notice. One of the unfortunate consequences of this is that Fr Dunne has noted that the Sacrament of First Holy Communion will not proceed as planned in May; I appreciate this is hugely disappointing but we will have something to look forward to at a later date.

We appreciate that posting school work is working very well for some students while others find it a bit more challenging. We do encourage you all to do your best and to keep working to the best of your ability. If you have any questions or queries, parents can e-mail the school at kilmacrennanschool@eircom.net and we’ll do our best to help. Some of the teachers have set up individual emails and these can be found with their class work for the coming week.

We have set some work for the coming weeks. Work packs are being posted to Junior and Senior Infant pupils and should arrive on Monday or Tuesday. Work for the other classes can be found under ‘Our Classes’ drop-bar on the website. The SEN/ Learning Support team will make contact with their pupils over the next few days.

Please note that the deadline for applying for school transport is Friday, April 24th. This is done online at www.buseireann.ie/schooltransport. Kilmacrennan NS has no role in this process,

Please contact me via email if you require any further information,

Take care,

Yours sincerely,

John Devenney
