Entry and Exit Guidelines during the New Build
Below is important information regarding the logistics of entering and exiting the school during the new build. A copy of this note will also be emailed to each family in the school and placed on our school website www.stsylvestersinfantschool.com
The new build will commence in July. There are a number of Health & Safety issues which must to be adhered to during the build. We appreciate this may be a stressful time for some, but it will be worth it in the end. Our main concern is caring for the four hundred and fifty children entering and exiting the school.
The Board of Management has designated THREE SEPARATE SCHOOL ENTRY/EXIT gates and has taken the following necessary steps to alleviate some of the expected congestion.
You may only use the entry/exit gate specific to your room number:-
èEntry/Exit 1: Graveyard Gate
Rooms 15, 16, 17 and 18 ONLY
èEntry/Exit 2: Yellow Walls Road
Rooms 1, 2, 4 and 8 ONLY
èEntry/Exit 3: Pedestrian Gate at Staff Car-Park
Rooms 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 & Hall ONLY
We understand that these three distinct and separate entrances will be challenging and present difficulties for parents who have more than one child in the school. However, the Health and Safety of our children is our number one priority.
We suggest parents contact other parents from their child’s class and arrange shared drop-offs/collection of siblings. Parents contact details are available from your child’s class rep.
It is important to note the following:-
For parents/children using the Entry/Exit 3, we suggest you avail of the free one hour car-parking in Bridgefield.
In order to minimise traffic congestion we also encourage walking, scooting, cycling etc. However, the Board of Management cannot accept responsibility for loss of scooters, bikes etc.
For Health & Safety reasons the Board of Management must implement a staggered start/finish as follows:
