Covid-19 Advice for Parents

It is vitally important that we maintain our high standards of health and hygiene in Monastery NS going forward. Please continue to monitor the health and well-being of your son coming into the autumn and winter months when colds and flus become common.

The following documents will help you;

HSE Covid-19 Advice Sheet For Parents

Covid Symptoms & Comparison with Flu & Cold

We ask that any child displaying Covid like symptoms remains off school until you have sought the free advice of your GP / HSE and his symptoms have fully gone (48 hours).

The same applies if you or your son has been a close contact to a confirmed case or to an individual who is awaiting test results or has returned to Ireland from a country not currently on Ireland’s travel ‘Green List’.

Important Covid Forms for Parents

Pupils' Covid and Non-Covid Absences

If your son is absent from school, whether Covid or Non-Covid related, you must complete and return the Return to Educational Facility Declaration Form to your son’s class teacher. This can be completed on our Eolas App on your mobile phone or downloaded, completed and emailed to our school office or downloaded, printed, completed and sent back with your son.

Chronic symptoms which might cause concern

If your son experiences chronic symptoms which might cause concern in light of Covid-19, such as a chronic cough caused by asthma, you should complete the Chronic Symptoms Declaration Form and return it to your son’s class teacher as soon as possible.

If we have a confirmed case of COVID-19

If we have a confirmed positive case of Covid-19 in the school it is only prudent that we consider what procedures are in place to deal with such a situation were it to arise, so that all of us are aware in advance of what happens in such an event. Please read the following letter, If we have a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the school” for more information.
