Morning supervision letter – 14th February 2019

14th February 2019

Dear Parents,

The Board of Management have reviewed the morning supervision arrangements in the school. In the interests of the health and safety of the children, the arrangements below will commence from Monday 25th February.

The school will open to receive pupils at 9.10am. No responsibility is accepted for pupils arriving before that time. The school day will commence at 9.20am. No pupils should arrive later than 9.20am.
On dry mornings, children will be supervised in the yard from 9.10am. They will be collected by their teacher at 9.20am and taken to their classroom.

On wet mornings, school doors will open at 9.10am. Children will be supervised in their classrooms.
Supervision arrangements at the end of the school day will remain as they are.

Children will only be allowed to leave the school grounds unsupervised, if parents have signed the consent form to do so. Children leaving the school grounds unsupervised must wear a high-vis jacket.

Teachers will be designated to supervise children inside the school gates until 3.10pm. No responsibility can be taken for children once they leave the school premises. No responsibility can be taken for children after 3.10pm.
Children walking from school will exit via the gates at the bottom of the school. Children in 3rd & 6th classes will also be collected at these gates. Children in 1st/2nd classes will exit via the middle gates. Children in 4th/ 5th classes will exit via the gate at the main entrance to the school.

Children who remain on for school activities should go straight to the relevant room or hall etc. at 3pm.
We seek the co-operation of all parents/guardians in supporting these safety guidelines and in explaining them to their children. As you are aware, the safety of the children is our primary concern and we appreciate your support in helping us achieve this.

The Board of Management of Scoil Naomh Micheál
