School Closure due to Heating Problem
Following a meeting of the Board of Management tonight Thursday March 10th 2016 we would like to inform you of the current situation.
The school will remain closed due to the lack of heating.
As per Circular 21/79, which is available to view online at www.education.ie “The acceptable minimum level of heating in classrooms is 16 degrees C.” We have been unable to achieve this on any day this week.
Work on the replacemnet of the existing boiler will commence tomorrow. This work which involes both Plumbers and Electricians will continue for the next few weeks including the Easter Holidays. The work schedule plans to have the sytem ready for testing during the last week of March (Easter Week) and to have the school ready for pupils and staff to return on Monday April 4th as per our school calendar. We will confirm this date to you here on the website and by text as soon as we have confirmation, which will most likely be March 31st or April 1st.
We appreciate that this has been a difficult time for families and thank you for your patience and continued cooperation.
