We are very excited to welcome everyone back to Milford N.S. on Tuesday morning. A huge thank you to all our staff and Board of Management members for their support and effort in getting everything ready for our school reopening. Our focus right now is to help the children to settle back into their daily school routines in a gentle and safe way.
Our plan to reopen the school will be monitored and reviewed on a daily basis and we will keep you informed of any changes via Aladdin and our website.
Here are some reminders and notices:
Face Covering & Social Distancing: We are asking all adults to wear a mask or visor when dropping / collecting their child. Please observe the 2m social distancing advice from the HSE.
School Start: We will receive children from 8:40am on Tuesday morning. The children will go directly to their classrooms via designated routes. Children from 2nd Class 6th will be walking up from the church carpark by themselves.
Staff members will be stationed on the roadway from the church carpark to the school to welcome the children and to guide them to their rooms. Parents of children in Senior infants and 1st Class may escort their children to the drop off zone situated in front of the Infant Courtyard. Please return to church car park via the roadway.
Staff members will be present to direct the children to their classrooms. Please do not worry if you are running late this week in the mornings.
Home Time: Senior Infant collection will take place in the Infant Courtyard at 1:40pm. Parents collecting children in 1st to 6th Class should wait for their child(ren) in the church carpark. 1st Class Children will be dispersed at 2:35pm and will be escorted by their teachers to the church carpark. All other classes will be dispersed at 2:40pm supervised by staff members.
Pupil Medication: Parents may sign the administration of medication indemnity form and drop in pupil medication to the school 9:30am-10:30am and 3pm-3:3:30pm. Ms. Newman will be available to accept the medication at these times. Please have medication in an A4 envelope labelled with your child’s name and teacher. Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing if visiting tomorrow. Please do not send in medication with your child as indemnity forms need to be signed in receipt of medication.
Allergies: Please let us know if your child has any allergies or any underlying ailments which may cause coughs and sneezes.
Money: Please do not send in money until next week. Our preferred method for collection of money this year will be via Aladdin epayments. Once classes are complete we circulate Aladdin Connect signup details to everyone.
Schoolbooks: Please do not send your child’s books tomorrow. Rental books from last year may be returned. Your child should bring in their lunch, pencil case and three copies including a maths copy. The teachers will indicate what books that the children will need to bring in each day this week tomorrow.
Homework: Children will not have written homework for the next few weeks.
Homework Club: Ms. Hill and Ms. Quinlan will circulate information in relation to the Homework Club later this week.
