Dear Parent / Guardian,

The Board of Management and staff of Lucan East ETNS are delighted to be welcoming our Junior Infant to 2nd class pupils back to school on 1st March 2020.

We have all recommended control measures in place to ensure that this will be a safe re-opening.  Please help us by ensuring to do the following before we all start back together again next week:

1.    Send a small personal hygiene pack (with clean face cloth for hand drying and tissues) to school with your child each day

2.    Check your child’s start time, finish time and collection point below

3.    Fill in the ‘Student Return to School Form’ by 12 midday on Friday 26th February (sent by text and email).

4.    Please ensure that your child washes their hands before they come to school everyday.

5.    Adults must wear a face mask while on the school grounds at all times.

6.    Go through handwashing procedures with your child and HSE Advice for Parents at the following link: https://www.gov.ie/en/collection/5572b-back-to-school-advice-for-parents-students-and-families/
