Please find below an update from Public Health with useful advice for parents:
Public Health update 22 September 2021
Thank you for the many queries about the Admissions process to 1st year 2022. As determined by the Admissions Act, our Admissions Policy and Annual Admissions Notice will be published online near the end of September and our application form for 1st year 2022 will be made available online from 1st October. Parents/guardians will have a 3 week window to return the application form to the front office and receive a receipt of application. We usually hold an Open day every second year, but last year we could only hold a virtual open day due to the pandemic. This year we will arrange to provide online resources and videos to help potential students and parents/guardians discover more about our school and choice of subjects for 1st years.
DDLETB and Wriggle are hosting a Cyber Safety talk for parents this evening – Thursday 26th August at 7pm.

Students and Parents/Guardians please note:
The Board of Management have approved the following additional policy provided by the Department of Education relating to students following all arrangements in place for the health and safety of our students. It can be read in full here: Lucan CC Covid-19 Health and Safety Policy
This policy coupled with our newly adopted additional rule from our last Board meeting:
should act as a clear deterrent to any student who is not taking the special arrangements seriously.
We are delighted by the respect shown by most of our students for our rules and usually a gentle reminder by staff is all that is needed to correct something. However, having the strength of wording of this policy behind the school in case of a serious infringement offers reassurance to the school community that such matters will be taken seriously and that the health, safety, physical and mental wellbeing of all school staff and students and their families are of absolute importance.
While classroom compliance with the rules and regulations is at a very high level, we have some ongoing concerns about the physical distancing of students outside of classrooms and on the journey to and from school. We ask all parents/guardians and students to discuss this seriously and return next week with a determination to follow physical distancing rules more strictly. Remember we are doing this not only for our own safety but also for that of the most vulnerable in our wider school community.
Please ensure that parents/guardians and students discuss this new policy and its implications over the days ahead as it is now officially part of our code of behaviour even though it is not published in the student journal.
