School Closure re. Covid-19

Killygarry National School will be closed from 6pm today until Sunday 29th of March 2020 under instruction from the Department of Education and Skills.  A letter has been sent home with all pupils today along with some school work for each child to complete for the next three weeks, just in case this closure period is extended.  We wish you well during this time and we sincerely hope you all remain healthy and free from this virus.  We also extend our wishes to anyone who is ill at this time as a result of Covid-19.

All pupils and students are urged to practice social distancing, and to minimise physical contact with each other, to help avoid the spread of Covid-19.  This should include minimising social contact, avoiding meeting up and keeping physical space between them.  Parents and guardians are urged to support their children to maintain this approach.
