Guidance for parents supporting children

4 years ago

The Department of Education and Skills has issued "A Guide for parents on supporting children and young people with daily routines while schools are closed".

The Government has made a decision to close all schools in Ireland, in order to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus and keep as many people as possible safe and well. In addition to this, people have been asked to stay at home and to practice social and physical distancing.

We have not been in this situation before, so this is new to us all, but if we follow the right advice we will get through this, and in time we will be proud of how we responded and worked together to support our country. This decision has impacted on all of our lives and changed everyone’s daily routines.

Some children and young people may be coping well with social and physical distancing and/or staying at home and completing school work at home, whereas others may be struggling with these changes. There will be challenges as your child will miss their friends, school and their extra-curricular activities. There are things that can help you and your children to get through this challenging time.
