Scoil Mhuire Will Re-Open Tomorrow (Tuesday)

Following a trojan effort by a team of staff, parents and friends of Scoil Mhuire (not all in the photo!), great progress has been made in the past 24 hours in clearing much of the snow. We will be re-opening tomorrow for all pupils. To ensure everyone's safe return to school, please note the following:

  • To help manage traffic, children can arrive to school between 8.50am and 9.50am.
  • It would be appreciated if homemaker parents/guardians brought their children to school at 9.20am to allow parents/guardians going to work for 9.00am to drop off their children safely.
  • Children who arrive up to 9.50am will not be marked late for school.
  • Children can only access the school via the Ferndale Gate at the rear and the pedestrian gate at the front of the school. We are not in a position to open the Ashfield Gate tomorrow.
  • Staff will be located at the front and rear of the school to assist with drop off as needed.
  • The Rainbow Gate will operate as usual.
  • Children arriving before 8.50am must go straight to the hall.
  • The playground and pitch will be out of use for the next number of days.
  • Breakfast Club and Homework Club will not operate until further notice.
  • School lunches will be available tomorrow. As we are unsure of our supply of drinking water, your child should bring a drink to school (non fizzy).

As many of our families know, water is beginning to be restored in Wexford town. However, due to our location water will be restored in Scoil Mhuire later than lower lying areas in the town. We are hopeful that it will return tonight or tomorrow morning. We need water at school for drinking, hand washing, toilets etc. While we have some water in reserve, it will have to be managed carefully tomorrow. If Irish Water is unable to resume service tomorrow, we unfortunately will have to consider closing again on Wednesday as Scoil Mhuire cannot function without toilet facilities.

Please take a little extra time to get to school tomorrow and take it gently on the footpaths and walkways. If you have any concerns about you and your child getting to school safely, please do not take any unnecessary risks, particularly if you have a distance to travel or your area is still under a lot of snow.

A big thank you to our families for your understanding and co-operation and we hope that all will go well tomorrow.
