School Closed – Mon 5th and Tue 6th Mar

Good afternoon everyone,

Following a meeting of the school’s Board of Management today, we have taken the decision that our school will remain closed tomorrow, Mon, 5th March. As of now, the roads around the school, as well as the school car park, are still covered in snow. So in the interest of the health and safety of our children, parents and staff, we have taken the decision to remain closed tomorrow. The safety of our school community is our prime concern.

Furthermore, as you have been previously notified, the school will be closed for the children on Tue, 6th March. As required by the Department of Education and Skills, the teachers must attend a professional development course that day for the incoming new language curriculum. The timing of this day is unfortunate with recent school closures, but this professional development day was organised long in advance of recent closures.

Therefore, we hope to see the children back in school at 8.30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, 7th March, when the school will be reopened. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Hansfield ETNS Board of Management.
