With the rise in the numbers of positive cases within the local area and in the school community, we ask parents to be extremely vigilant. Please do not to send children to school if they are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 or any other illness. If in doubt, please err on the side of caution. We really want to keep our school open for the duration of the year. Continue to teach good hygiene and respiratory etiquette and cut down on social contacts in so far as possible. Ensure boys hands are clean when arriving at school and please continue to follow all public health advice. Symptoms and treatment - HSE.ie

Antigen testing for close contacts

The HSE advise that you should do 3 antigen tests in total. You can do them at any time of the day.

You should do your 3 antigen tests in this order:

  • first test on the day you get your tests

  • second test 2 days after your first test

  • third test 2 days after your second test
