Updates on School Reopening

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As I am sure by now you are aware the Department of Education has signalled its intention to open all schools for the coming school year. Here at Davis College we look forward to welcoming your son/daughter back to the school or indeed, welcoming them for the first time. Given the current situation, school is going to be different to what we are all used to. There has to be a focus on health and safety particularly around the whole Covid issue. This will mean new rules, regulations and practices that we will all have to get used to. That said, school will continue to be a caring environment where teaching, learning and enjoyment are part and parcel of everyday life.

Much work needs to be done to ensure a safe return to school for all those in the school community. I want to reassure you that this work is already well underway and we will be doing our utmost in the coming weeks to ensure everything possible is done for that safe return. We ask you to continue to play your part in bringing about a safe return by encouraging your son/daughter to adhere to Covid 19 regulations such as regular hand washing/sanitising, social distancing, appropriate behaviour around coughing and sneezing etc.

While reopening is a challenge, it is also a very exciting time as we are on the verge of opening our new extension which will transform the school. While initially due to open in April, the Covid crisis has led to delays but since the reopening of the economy, work on the extension has continued at pace. We are currently on target for the building to open in early September and we ask for your patience at the start of the year as there may be some minor delays with some year groups returning. If you do not hear from us, assume you are returning as per the school calendar.

The school office will reopen on August 10th but we ask that if possible all queries should be by phone rather than in person unless absolutely necessary.
