Your Student Digital Leaders
Well done for your engagement in the last two weeks of remote learning. Ms Birnie has recorded a short message for you all to thank you and to pass on advice from all of the staff in Lucan Community College. We miss you and are thinking of you all and look forward to seeing you back in the college again soon. Don’t forget to thank your parents and guardians for all they are doing to help you to study and learn from home. These are challenging times for everyone and every act and word of kindness helps to make things a little better. Take care and stay safe.
We are delighted to publish the first draft of our Remote Learning Plan for students, parents and guardians.
Please read it carefully. We will seek feedback from students and parents shortly and update it as needed.

Dear student, parents/guardians,
Thank you for your patience as we put plans in place for a period of remote learning during the weeks of school closure. We only received communication from the Department of Education late this evening with instructions for the coming weeks and are still awaiting clear direction on a number of matters. We are currently consulting with staff members about our plans. We will then share details of our remote learning plans with students and parents/guardians.
We will now hold staff meetings and workshops throughout Monday and remote classes will start on Tuesday 12th January. Further details of how the remote learning timetable will operate will be circulated before classes start and individual subject teachers will communicate through Teams and email with students with further details for specific subjects.
In the meantime, please complete the survey sent by text on Thursday 7th January if you would like your son/daughter to be considered for borrowing a school device. We have had a large number of requests for borrowing a school device and will have to operate based on priority needs.
If you already have a device that you can use, please ensure that it is working well and that you can access your 365 account and all of your Teams class groups as teachers will be using Teams to communicate with you next week. Familiarise yourself with the online classroom etiquette and remote learning tips on pages 14 and 15 of the school journal and ensure that you have all of your class materials ready to restart your learning journey.
3rd and 6th year students should continue with their revision and study plans until we can clarify arrangements for the Mock exams. The Department is currently stating that they plan for both Leaving Certificate and Junior Cycle state exams to go ahead. Further clarification is being sought regarding oral exams, practical exams, project work and CBAs. The best advice for now is to continue working as planned and to follow the advice of teachers once term restarts on Monday 11th January.
TY students will move into their new modules which are now on your timetable. We will review the scheduled time for work experience and communicate with you later if there is a chance and about plans for alternative course work that should be completed if students cannot secure work experience.
Once term starts you will have the support of your teachers, tutors, year heads, guidance team, additional needs team and management team over the weeks ahead. As we did in our previous period of remote learning, we look forward to encouraging you to be active, engaged learners until we can meet face to face again soon. Please do your best to keep the learning going. We hope that our school community has learned from the unplanned period of remote learning last March to May and our remote learning plan will try to ensure a healthy balance of teacher led work and self-directed work for students with a focus on the wellbeing of all.
Our office staff are currently working remotely but queries can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the office phone 016282077 during office hours and any paperwork can be posted to the school at Lucan Community College, Esker Drive, Lucan, Co Dublin K78TF67. Please do not visit the school unless you have made an official appointment.
Please remember the HSE advice to stay at home and reduce your contacts so that we can reunite again as a school community when it is safe to do so.
