Parents/guardians, school will not be opened tomorrow, Monday 23rd March, due to the lack of clarity and detail surrounding the process of a school becoming a child care facility for children of KEY WORKERS. We are working on issues such as safety of your children, safety of staff, lack of provision of protective equipment, not to mention insufficient staff available.
We have major concerns with social distancing throughout the day as that is not possible with young children.
We will keep this matter under daily review and keep you informed.
Principals from Primary schools in Upper Mourne Parish.
