Update to Building Works: Alternative Drop off

Dear Parents,

We will continue to access the school via the junior yard from Monday 27th February until further notice.

Wishing you all an enjoyable mid-term break.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Our building project for an additional five classroom extension has been approved and will begin shortly.  Prefab site preparation works will commence immediately, therefore with effect from Thursday 16th February until Wednesday 22nd February 2017, to ensure safe access to the school grounds at drop off and pick up times, the children will enter and exit the school through the two gates leading from the junior playground onto Convent Road.

Each morning all classes will line up in the junior yard and at home time the teachers will bring their classes to the junior yard for pick up. Our school wardens Patricia and Alice will still be present at their usual junctions.   As there are steps up into the junior playground, parents and minders who will have prams or buggies are welcome to enter the school grounds at the main gate pedestrian entrance and may proceed through the school to the junior playground.

  • We request that all the younger children leave their bikes and scooters at home while we are entering / exiting through the junior yard. We ask also that the older children walk their bikes/scooters to the main gate pedestrian entrance and then enter the junior yard to line up.
  • On wet mornings we will continue to enter through the infant playground from 8.30am and staff will be available to direct the children to the school hall.
  • Finally, we request that dogs are not brought to school while these access arrangements are in place.

My apologies in advance for the inconvenience that the preparatory site works will cause over the next few weeks, but I hope that we can all work together and prioritise the safety of our children when entering and leaving Carysfort NS.
