The Taoiseach has just announced that “from tomorrow” all schools and colleges will close.
We are implementing our contingency plan and have instructed all students how to engage with classwork on line.
We are asking that they bring an additional bag to school tomorrow to take home any books or equipment which they will need over the coming weeks.
At this point I expect all buses to be running tomorrow and we will operate a normal school day.
Throughout the country all social interactions are being limited with most meetings and gatherings cancelled. We are all asked to keep our social physical contact to a minimum as we collectively fight this threat.
