As you will have heard in recent media reports, a system of Antigen Testing is to be introduced to primary Schools on or before November 29th.
Under the new system, parents will be asked to notify the school if their child tests positive for Covid-19 on a PCR test (Testing Centre).
The principal will make the families of children in the same pod aware that there has been a confirmed case in their child’s pod. The families will then have the opportunity to request free Antigen Tests from the HSE. The tests will be delivered to your home. Tests should be administered on Day 1, Day 3 and Day 5.
Children who do not have symptoms are free to attend school as normal.
