To ensure safety, our lunch provider has sourced paper based recyclable water bottles, which we have agreed to trial, for now. Pupils joining Junior Infants, or other classes for the first time, parents will need to fill in the menu choices and lunch bags for your son will normally commence on the Monday of the following week.

We are working very hard to prepare for school reopening in late August. The most important thing is the safety of all in our school community. There will be some necessary changes, in order to comply with public health advice. All members of our school community will play a role in our safety efforts.

School with start at 8.50 a.m. and pupils will go straight to their classrooms. Morning Assembly in the school yard will not be able to take place, for now. We must avoid large gatherings of people or people waiting in groups together. It is important that pupils who are able to, walk or 'park & stride', to avoid unnecessary traffic congestion on School Avenue. We will publish more detailed information in the coming weeks and will email all parents with helpful information.

In order to preserve Covid 19 Bubbles/Pods, all Afterschool Clubs and Homework Clubs will have to be suspended, for now. Break times will be staggered and there will be a slight staggering of finishing times also, at the end of the day.

For the safety of all, if anyone is unwell, they must NOT attend school. Anybody returning from overseas, must not attend school, for 2 weeks, if this is public health advice. We thank you all, so much, in advance, for working with us to keep everyone safe.

Once pupils enter the school grounds, they will need to go directly to their classrooms. Health advice is that parents Drop & Go. School Gates will not be opened early, like before.

In order to ensure a safe and orderly start, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 6th Classes will return to school on Thursday 27th August @ 8.50 a.m.. Senior Infants, 1st Class, 2nd Class & our ASD Class will return to school on Friday 28th August @ 8.50 a.m., while our new Junior Infant boys will start on Monday 31st August @ 10.00 a.m.. (more details to follow).

All members of our school community will have a role in ensuring that our school is a safe place to be. Your support, understanding and co-operation will be vital in implementing necessary changes to promote the good health of all in our school community.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Lough Parish contacted the schools in the parish to try and put in place a preliminary date for First Holy Communion subject to Covid 19 Public Health guidelines.

It is proposed that Communions would take place in the Lough Church as follows:

  • Greenmount N.S. on Saturday 19th September 2020
  • Glasheen Boys’ School on Saturday 26th September 2020
  • Glasheen Girls’ School on Saturday 3rd October 2020

These dates are provisional, as we must adhere to all public health guidance that may arise between now and September. 

Closer to the dates, each school will be in contact around more specific details.  However, it is likely that the numbers in attendance on the day will need to be restricted for social distancing reasons.

In relation to First Confession, Fr. John Paul will provide a general absolution in the respective schools a few days before Communion.
