School quiz Tuesday 6th March.

Fundraising quiz on Tuesday night 6th March in aid of Rathgormack National School. 7.30 pm in Rathgormack Community Centre. 

School re-opening tomorrow

Rathgormack School will re-open Monday 5th March 2018. We ask that all parents be mindful of road conditions in their area and decide if the journey to school is safe to undertake. If parents could carpool it might help to reduce the number of cars on the road or at the school.
The school grounds still have large accumulations of snow so
- we ask parents to tell pupils to go straight into school building via the cleared path when they arrive.
- Parents please do not leave pupils at school before the building is open.
- Parents please tell your children to stay off the snow in the school grounds
- No playing / snowballs etc please, (as we don't want children to be in wet clothes all day).
