part of the Croke Park agreement teaching staff at Scoil
Mhuire have undertaken 18
additional out of school working hours. These
hours are dedicated to inservice, planning and staff
meetings. As a result the staff meeting listed on your
school calendar will not take place this coming

reverse side of this newsletter carries up to date
information on the school bus service changes and their
implications for families.
3pm each day pupils from all classes leave in a number
of directions from their classrooms making it difficult
to monitor all children. Class teachers take their
classes to the front gate to monitor buses and cars .
Infant and resource teachers are now on a rota to cover
the back gate to the pitch. We would ask parents to come
to the gate to collect their children as we can then be
certain that everyone is accounted for. Children not
collected at 3pm will be brought back into the school
rather than wait alone unsupervised.
