As we approach the new academic year, in whatever form the Education Minister deems appropriate, we seek now to outline re-start procedures gradually using the school website as a communication platform.
We will communicate using a blend of articles and short video clips so that children can see that school is still a familiar and safe place. It will also be good for children to see the staff and to learn how they will enter the building as we have made several changes to our normal routines.
We would encourage you to check the School Website regularly now that we are in the month of August as the full Re-start plan will be published soon.
A very important change in school routines is the use of the Eduspot App which will enable school to become totally cashless ie School Dinners, School Fund and all School Trips (when they eventually re-start) will be paid via this Application. It is not possible to use or pay with cash or cheque from here on in.
Very soon you will receive an email inviting you to download the App giving guidance. Each teacher has been in touch via SeeSaw seeking the email address for the person most likely to select and pay for dinners at the weekend for the following week. It is worth noting that dinners must be ordered the weekend before.
In August and September the School Kitchen will NOT be serving hot / cooked meals. Instead, a Packed Lunch may be ordered using the Eduspot App. This lunch will be delivered directly to each Classroom door / bubble by the Kitchen Staff. It is anticipated that from October onwards we will start serving cooked meals.
Please do revisit the website regularly and encourage friends and parents to do the same.
