Rental Textbooks have to be returned to the school, audited and organised for September.

This weekend, 13th and 14th June please pack your child’s rental textbooks in a plastic bag (small bin liner). Please write your child’s name and class on the outside of the bag in large writing (perhaps on an A4 size page). Please return the rental textbooks to the school on Tuesday 16th June at the times indicated below: –

If your youngest child is in: –

Junior Infants: 9 a.m. to 9:20 a.m. (* See note below)

Senior Infants: 9:20 a.m. to 9:40 a.m. (* See note below)

First Class: 9:40 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Second Class: 10 a.m. to 10:20 a.m.

Third Class: 10:20 to 10:40 a.m.

Fourth Class: 10:40 – 11 a.m.

Fifth Class: 11 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. (**See note below)

Sixth Class: 11:20 to 11:40 a.m.

The school will be closed from 12 noon on Tuesday 16th June.

Obviously if you have children in more than one class you only come to the school once, at the time for the class your youngest child is in.

* Pupils in Junior and Senior should not have any textbooks to return to the school as their books are workbooks and can be written in. Some children may have school library books at home. Please return these to the school at the above times.

** Mr Blake did not send home textbooks so they will not need to be returned to the school. If you have one child in the school, in 5th class, you will not need to return textbooks to the school.

While we would love to see all children we ask that children do not come to the school to return textbooks. Their excitement at possibly seeing their friends for the first time in weeks would not be easy to contain and social distancing would not be observed. This could have serious implications for you and members of your household.

If you are experiencing any of the Covid 19 symptoms, please do not visit the school. Perhaps you could organise somebody else to return your child’s/ children’s textbooks for you. Likewise, if you have a childcare issue on the day please make arrangements for somebody else to return the textbooks for you.

This is not a social occasion and your visit to the school must be brief. Social distancing must be adhered to at all times

If you are unsure which books are rental books and which books are workbooks, please see below for a detailed list. Rental books must be returned to the school. Workbooks can be written in and are kept at home.

Rental Textbooks to be returned to the school are shown in the table below. Please be aware that your child may not have all of these books at home.
