There is a Government Advisory in operation against all non-essential international travel. Travel restrictions are in place to protect public health and to mitigate the risk of new variants of COVID-19 entering the country. Details of these measures are available on the travel section of the gov.ie website.
From 4 February 2021, a legal requirement to home quarantine has been introduced for all passengers arriving in Ireland.
Based on gov.ie advice the Board of Management is implementing the following protocol for children returning from foreign travel.
- Parents must email email@example.com to inform the school that the child has travelled abroad
- Parents must email firstname.lastname@example.org the child’s itinerary stating child’s return date to Ireland
- Child must complete 14 day’s home quarantine before returning to school.
Failure to inform the school of foreign travel will be a serious breach of our Covid 19 Response Plan.
If this occurs the child will be sent immediately to the sick bay and parents will be contacted to collect child immediately. Child can only return to school once 14 day’s home quarantine are complete.
