The DES has stated that the second phase (highlighted in red) of the Lucan East ETNS building, which was built in 2011, is to be assessed as a precautionary measure by structural engineers. This is part of a wider investigation being carried out on schools built by Western Building Systems. We have been in constant communication with Educate Together and the Department of Education and Skills since Monday to get an exact date for this but one has not yet been assigned to Lucan East ETNS.
It is important to state as yet that neither Lucan East ETNS nor the Educate Together national office has been given any information that indicates any immediate danger to persons in the Lucan East ETNS school building, nor any reason why Lucan East ETNS should close.
A further update will be provided to all parents/guardians as soon as more information becomes available to us.
We would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding at this time.
Is mise le meas,
