Rathmore N.S. Extended School Closure

Dear Parents/Guardians

The Department of Education and Skills (DES) announced on Monday, 1st February,  that a plan had been agreed with the relevant education stakeholders to initiate a phased return to in-person learning for children in special schools and children in special classes in mainstream schools. Special Schools will reopen on 11th February followed by Mainstream Schools with Special Classes on 22nd February.  

Talks will continue now with stakeholders on further phases of return so that a wider reopening can be delivered for children as soon as possible and I will be in contact with you as soon as I receive further clarity on a reopening date for Rathmore N.S. The teachers and I are looking forward to returning to Rathmore N.S. and to in-person teaching and learning as soon as it is safe to do so and in the meantime, remote learning provision will continue to be made available to all pupils in line with our school’s Remote Teaching and Learning Policy. 

Please continue to adhere to the public health advice which has been issued during this Level 5 restriction to combat the spread of COVID-19 by reducing your social contacts and staying at home. You can contact the school by emailing the school office at the following email address office@rathmorens.ie

Thank you for your patience and co-operation during this challenging time.

Take Care and Stay Safe
