Please see the revised schedule for Junior Infant start times below. Times published in Junior Infant booklet no longer apply. Changes to schedule are due to delays in school opening. We look forward to meeting with all our new families next week.
Friday 6th Sept – 8.30-11.00am
Mon 9th-13th Sept – 8.15-11.30am
Mon 16th Sept onwards – full day – 8.15-12.55pm
I am sorry to inform you that we have been informed by the Department of Education that there will be a delay in the opening of the school building.
We have been given initial instruction by the Department of Education that due to the volume of works across all schools, the Department will not be in a position to hand the school back to us as scheduled.
The school will now re-open to students on Friday the 6th September.
I acknowledge the difficulties that this places on families. Unfortunately, this situation is beyond the school’s control.
This situation will affect start times for Junior Infants. We will be in touch with Junior infants parents with revised times.
The BOM would like to point out that these delays are unavoidable due to the delay in the building being handed back and we thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.
Welcome to all new families starting with us in Ashbourne Educate Together. The following booklet has lots of information about our school. Please also see the note that was emailed to all parents in recent days.
This booklet will also be available under the Parent Info tab above if needed in the future.
We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks.
