Please find below a leaflet from the Department of Education which contains the latest advice on school reopening for parents.
Message from Minister for Education Norma Foley:
"We have updated gov.ie/backtoschool with new materials for parents and for students. These are designed to be age-appropriate and have been developed in consultation with children and young people and parents. I am grateful to everyone who has participated in giving us this feedback and support and I hope you find them useful.
Video for parents with key information on supporting children to return to school available here https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/2d3af-advice-during-covid-19-back-to-school-advice-for-parents/ and https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/a04fc-advice-for-students-and-their-families/
Fliers for parents – these are available for download https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/2d3af-advice-during-covid-19-back-to-school-advice-for-parents/. The HSE has prepared material on recognising symptoms, which complements the material from the Department on returning to school. This is available here https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/40e9c-protecting-your-child-from-coronavirus/
Age-appropriate videos for children and young people at different stages. Videos for primary (both junior and senior level) and post-primary students are available here https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/a04fc-advice-for-students-and-their-families/
Resources in a wide range of languages. Many schools will enjoy a huge diversity among their student and parent community. To support these parents, we have translated guidance for parents at gov.ie/backtoschool."
