Dear Parents,

Please find attached a guidance leaflet featuring advice for parents of pupils returning to special classes.

Special Schools and Classes – Advice for Parents

There is also a video message from Public Health Consultant Dr Abigail Collins available here: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/a0bff-reopening-our-primary-and-special-schools/#public-health-guidance-for-schools , in which she outlines how to ensure the safe return of special schools and classes.

The below two documents from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) feature the latest public health advice and might also be useful to parents at this time:
