Car Park Safety – Important Notice

13th December 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians,

You may have noticed that staff members are standing at the gates. This is because, despite numerous emails and website updates, we still have an enormous problem with cars driving into the school during drop-off and at both collection times.

Yesterday morning, there was an incident involving a driver and two children which almost resulted in an accident. This is completely unacceptable. The safety of all of your children is paramount and we cannot allow this dangerous situation to continue. In addition to this, we would ask that staff members are treated with respect when doing this job.

Unless you have applied for (and received) a parking permit from our Board of Management, you cannot drive into the school for any reason, at any time during the day. From January 7th, the school gate will be locked at these times.

Please pass this information on to any grandparents or childminders that may be collecting your child from school.

Thank you,

Skerries E.T.N.S.
