School Start Time: School starts at 9.00am each morning, Children should be dropped off at the school gate between 8.45am and 8.55am. Some staff members arrive early to prepare for their day’s work and are not in a position to receive children before 8.45am. This request is being made on the grounds of Insurance, Health & Safety and Child Protection Issues. 

Office Hours: 8.45am – 12.00  Mon – Fri.

All communications, including messages (lunches, instruments, sports equipment etc.) and appointments, should be routed through the office so as not interrupt the teachers and pupils when they are in class.

Parking:  We ask that the entrance to the staff car park not be used for pedestrian access to the school building. For safety reasons all pedestrians including children, parents and visitors should use the pedestrian entrance (by the flag poles) to access the school building, school office and Krafty Kids. The staff car park should not be used by parents for parking. Thank you for your co-operation.

All children must be collected at the school gate. Children from Junior Infants to 3rd will be walked to the school gate in all weather by their teacher. In the interest of safety we request that you advise your child to stay on school grounds and inside the gate until you come up to collect him/her when the school day is over.
