This year, with the additional precautions in place, we ask that Birthday cakes are NOT sent into school for the class.
We know that this is a lovely part of the Birthday routine. However, we ask for your full co-operation this year.
The Eduspot email notifications have been issued and we ask that you simply register now following their instructions.
Please check your email Inbox or the Junk box.
NB Children require their own Break and Lunch in August as the School Kitchen may not prepare food in the summer months.
The facility to enable you to order Packed Lunches from the kitchen in September will go live later next week.
We wish to remind you that Waringstown Primary School is a NUT FREE ZONE.
This means that all children are required to have a safe Packed Break or Lunch.
Children should avoid ALL nuts; eg Pesto Pasta Salad. Pesto contains cashew and / or pine nuts. Therefore, pesto sauce in wraps or pasta salads MUST be strictly off the menu in school both at Break and Lunch time.
Kiwi is another food item to be avoided as we have several children with a severe allergy.
Thank you for your ongoing support in this most vital aspect of safeguarding procedures within school.
We seek to remind you that the School Kitchen does NOT operate in August. Therefore, children in P2 – P7 will require a Break and a Packed Lunch from home in August upon their re-start.
The school kitchen will start preparing Packed Lunches from Tuesday 01 September.
Further details to follow soon regarding the EduSpot App which will enable you to order and pay for school meals and trips etc.
NB The school is cashless from here on in and CANNOT accept money as a means of payment.

Following the 'Northern Ireland Re-opening Schools Guidance: New School Day (Version 2),' published by the Department of Education yesterday, we have updated our re-start procedures accordingly.
Please find a PDF attached.

As a school we await the Minister of Education’s final guidelines to schools (due Thursday 13 August).
We will publish our own detailed plan with start dates and re-start information thereafter.
The Lunch Box should ideally house everything your child needs to eat at Break and Lunch. We would prefer a Lunch Box as opposed to Lunch Bags initially.
Space is going to be at a premium with children remaining within classroom bubbles. Therefore, we want to establish good routines before being overwhelmed with too many items.
The children will NOT be able to refill bottles from the Water Filters as they are seen as a red flag area for transmission.
Parents should pack a small bottle of water in the Lunch Box each day. It will go home daily for a wash and a refill.
The school has purchased Plastic Zip Folders which will be given to each child on their first day.
If there are any snack bars or drinks such as Fruit Shoots that do not fit in your child’s Lunch Box, please place them in their Zip Folder as the folder will stay on the rack under your child’s desk.
Please remember that the school has quite a large number of children in multiple classes who are allergic to nuts. These children require EpiPen. The school is a NUT FREE zone and we remind you to be ever vigilant and mindful of this when packing your child’s Break and Lunch snacks.
We wish to remind you that we require a fresh and in date supply of EpiPen and or Asthmatic Inhalers upon your child’s return to school.
If your child carries an EpiPen for allergies it must brought to school by an adult on Monday 17 August or Tuesday 18 August. The adult bringing these items to school should report directly to the School Office and leave them with Mrs Fitzpatrick in a Lunch Box container clearly stating the child’s name.
Children requiring Asthmatic Inhalers should bring them to school on Day One of their return.
The Asthma Register will be updated, as usual, in Term One.
Parents are respectfully asked NOT to visit a Classroom. Should you require a conversation with the teacher a telephone call can be arranged.
As school returns we do not wish children to use a school bag.
The Class Requisite List outlines the equipment for each child. This should be brought to school on your child’s first day in a disposable plastic bag. The personal equipment will be stored in your child’s individual tray / drawer in their classroom.
Each child should have a pencil case box housing their daily stationery along with wipes, hand sanitiser and tissues for personal use.
The Blue Book Folios should be safely stored away as they will NOT be used this year. Instead, the school have purchased plastic zip folders. These will go home with the limited amount of paperwork each day. This plastic folder is easily sanitized and will stay on the rack under your child’s desk during the day.
As children re-start school we will NOT be using the Cloakrooms.
Children should go directly to their new classroom as coats will be kept within each separate classroom bubble.
Movement around the building will be kept to the very minimum. Therefore, classes entering cloakrooms will simply not be possible at peak times. This maintains each class within their protective bubble.
The school’s full ‘Re-start Plan’ which outlines how and when children are to arrive to school and enter the building will be published via the school website once the Education Minister states clearly when and how school’s may re-start!
