We would like to direct your attention to updated guidance issued this morning on talking to children and young people about Covid-19.
You can access and download this guidance in both Irish and English from the Department of Education and Skills website below under the heading ‘Talking to children and young people about Covid-19’.
We would also like to direct your attention to a child-friendly interview that Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn did with RTÉ’s new2day programme last week, that may also be a useful resource when talking about Covid-19 with children and students.
Please ensure that the school has up to date email addresses and mobile telephone numbers at which you can be contacted. This is essential. We need this so that we can keep you informed with any further guidance reading this evolving situation.
As always we appreciate your cooperation and support.
