Distance Learning/Covid-19


January 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you will be aware, schools have been closed once more and so we will be using the distance learning app called Seesaw Class App.  The children will have already received their codes and should be able to access Seesaw.  Any issues with this, please contact Tracy Fitzgerald, HSCL.  Those who have engaged during the previous forced closure should be familiar with the platform.  It had worked very well and it was a great credit to both our pupils and their parents’ as we made our way through those difficult times. We find ourselves faced with the challenge of remote teaching and trying to provide learning opportunities for our school community.  Once again, the school staff has been working very hard to provide learning opportunities and activities to create interest and challenge for your children while they are not able to attend school.   We sincerely request that you all support your child/children’s learning in this way.

It is important that your children stay focussed on some work/activities and I appeal for those of you who have not engaged frequently or at all to try to join in.  The link is at the bottom of the page explains how Seesaw works.  To facilitate your child’s learning all the required text books will be delivered during this week.  The work for each week will be set by the class teachers on Seesaw.

As I am sure you will understand that the future is still uncertain and may well contain an ongoing element of distance learning.  To this end, I appeal for all families to try to engage with our chosen platform as much as possible.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Yours sincerely,


Mr. Jennings

Dear parents and guardians,

We are re-issuing this request for engagement in the Distance Learning Platform 'Seesaw'. Please click on the link below. We are undertaking this platform, the 'Seesaw Class App' to help with distance learning in our school should the need arise in the near future. To help us, we would be very grateful if you would inform us of your consent in participating in this initiative. The form below should take very little of your time to complete. We would be very grateful if you would complete it at your earliest convenience .

PLEASE NOTE, only one form is required for each family

Please also note that all individual responses will be treated confidentially.

An email address is necessary for the creation of the platform as the school/Class teachers will communicate with you and your child/children in this way. Your class teacher will send you an email explaining how to set up and interact with the App.

Thank you very much.

Peter Jennings, Principal

Dear Parents/guardians,

As you are aware the drop off and pick up area in front of the school can be an area of congestion for both traffic and people in the mornings and afternoons. The Boards of Management of both schools are working together to keep everybody safe outside the school. We are working very closely with Limerick County Council, Bus Éireann and the local Community Gardaí from Roxboro Garda Station to try and find some solutions. We would really appreciate your support as we trial the following changes and reminders:

  1. The small road outside the school gates will operate as a one-way system during drop off and pick up times.  Entry will be via the entrance at the Hyde Road side of the school and exit will be at the top of the road opposite Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Please drive slowly along this road.
  2. A reminder that no parking is permissible on double yellow lines or in the yellow box immediately outside the gates.
  3. Pedestrian crossings and junctions of roads should be kept clear of traffic.
  4. Parents/Bus drivers should ‘drop and go’ where possible. All pupils are well supervised once they enter the school grounds.
  5. Avoid congregating at the gate which will allow students clear and speedy access.
  6. Please be aware of social distancing  – there should be at least 2 meters between you and the person next to you.

The local Community Gardaí will help us and offer assistance as we adapt to these changes.

Many thanks for your continued support,

         Mr. Peter Jennings                                                              Mrs. Maria Allen

**Please note**

Our Lady of Lourdes School would kindly request of parents coming from the Dooradoyle/hospital direction, that they might consider using the church car park and allow Anne-Marie, our Crossing Lady, to bring your children safely to the school gate.  This would reduce the congestion considerably and remove the multidirectional vehicular movement also.  Your consideration in this matter would be greatly appreciated in these challenging times.
