Dear Parent/Guardian

In an effort to reduce the number of disposable masks that we are giving out and consequently reduce the number of masks going into landfill the school has decided to give every student two cloth masks free of charge.

The students can wear the masks provided by the school or a mask of their choice. From Monday next November 29 we will no longer be providing disposable masks free of charge. The school gave out 5,000 disposable masks between the start of the term and the October midterm break and every subsequent day the number of masks that are being handed out is increasing. From Monday next on, if a student choses to wear a disposable mask we would suggest that they have their own spare masks with them, however should a student require a disposable mask they can purchase one from the school office at a cost of one (€1) euro. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this.
