e accessed via VSware from today (Tuesday). • VSware can be accessed via the school app or at https://presmiltown.vsware.ie • Select your son/daughter's profile • Select ‘Assessment’ • Select ‘Term Reports’ • Select ‘Term 1 Progress Report 2020-21’ from drop down menu • If you wish to print a copy of the report this is best done via a PC, laptop or tablet. (Select “Actions” and “Download Results”. A printable pdf will be downloaded which can be printed in the normal way.) Please email office@presmilltown.ie if you are having any difficulties. In the absence of Parent-Teacher Meetings for 1st, 2nd, TY & 5th Year students, a written Parent-Teacher Feedback Report will also be provided. These will be posted on or before 11th February. ----------------------------------------------------------------- Attendance Rolls During Remote Learning Please be advised that attendance is being recorded at the end of each day for students who log-in to live lessons via TEAMS. Parents can view student attendance via VSware in the normal way. Please be advised that VSware attendance rolls are based on those students who log-in to the lesson. In a small number of cases teacher have identified that students have logged-in and have then been away from their computer for a substantial part of the lesson. This is one of the reasons that students should have their cameras on for each lesson. Your son/daughter’s attendance roll on VSware may indicate that they have logged-in to the lesson but if their camera is not on the teacher cannot verify with certainty that the student was actually present at the computer for the entire lesson. Remote learning is challenging for all involved and we thank you as parents for your hugely supportive roll over the past few weeks. We ask you to continue to encourage your son/daughter to participate fully in remote learning, in particular in live lessons. A key part of this is having their camera on in order for them to fully engage in the lesson and maximise the learning experience. If your son/daughter has an issue with their device camera on any given day please email office@presmilltown.ie and we will notify the relevant teachers. Please do not hesitate to make contact through the office email if we can help your son/daughter in relation to their remote learning. .........

from the school on Thursday (28th) between 11am – 2pm. We usually advise students to hold-off on buying their own recorder until they decide whether or not to keep music on for 2nd & 3rd Year. With that in mind students are free to borrow a school recorder until the end of 1st Year. Please note that these recorders have NOT been used by anyone else in the past year. If you wish, the school recorder can be soaked in Milton disinfectant fluid (or equivalent) for 20 minutes and left to dry thoroughly before use. Alternatively, if you would prefer to purchase your own recorder now, we highly recommend the Aulos 205A Descant Recorder – (Yellow Bag). While cheaper recorders are available, students will benefit greatly from the quality of sound/tone and durability of the Aulos 205A. https://www.waltons.ie/home/products/view/08aaul-1702o-aulos-205-descant-recorder/ https://promusica.ie/aulos-303-descant-recorder-1.html https://www.goodwinsmusic.ie/Aulos_descant_school_recorder Given the current increased transmissibility of the virus please ensure the following, 1) Only one person should attend for collection. 2) Face masks must be worn at all times while on-site (inc outside) 3) Strict social distancing is to be practiced at all times.

are very anxious about the pre-exams. Needless to say, the current remote-learning situation means that the pre-exams will not commence on 1st February as initially panned. Once we know when 6th Year students will be able to come back to school on-site we will start looking at the pre-exam situation. The focus for 6th Years during the remote learning period needs to be continuing with their regular learning routine and revision plan as much as they possibly can. Any revision or learning they do during this time will only serve them well when it comes to their exams in June as well as for pre-exams should they go ahead at some stage. As difficult as it may be, it is important to remain focused on the learning and the long-term goal of the leaving cert exams and to not to become distracted by other issues. Once we know when 6th Years will be allowed to return to school on-site we will look at the pre-exams situation and plan accordingly. As always please email office@presmilltown.ie if we can help your son/daughter in any way. Thank you. .........

media sites which post HSE letters issued by schools with the intention of keeping parents across the country informed of the number of COVID-19 cases arising in schools. Please be aware that while these sites may offer a useful service to parents, they do not have the facts and details about our school and individual cases. For example, last Wednesday we were made aware of a rumour that there was a confirmed positive case in a particular class. We were informed of this by a number of parents who were keeping their children home from school based solely on this rumour. We verified the rumour with the relevant parents and established it to be untrue. A message was sent last Thursday via our app to reassure parents that there were no confirmed positive cases in our school at that time. It remains the case that this particular student was and is negative for COVID-19. Yesterday morning (Monday) we were made aware of another student from a different class who had tested positive for COVID-19. HSE procedures for contact tracing followed and those not affected were informed of the case the same evening. We feel it is important that we let parents know that these two instances are totally unrelated. We want parents, students and staff to know that there have been no delays between us being made aware of a positive case and parents being notified, other than the very short period required for contact tracing procedures to be implemented. Thankfully, we have only had two positive cases in total this term: one in November and one yesterday. In both instances the time between us being notified of a positive case by parents/HSE and us notifying our parents and staff has been a matter of hours, not days as had been implied by some forums/platforms. Please know that your son/daughter’s safety is of paramount importance to us and trust that we will continue to inform parents of positive cases in our school in a manner that is both swift and accurate. Thank you as always for your support and cooperation. .........

embers of our school community of how important it is to act responsibility and in accordance with the new government level 3 restrictions. It is not just our behaviour in any one place that prevents the spread of the virus; it is how we behaviour all of the time. We expect all members of our school community to practice social distancing and COVID etiquette both in and outside of school. We continue to have significant measures in place to help stop the spread of COVID on-site, but of course the ideal scenario is to prevent COVID-19 coming into the school in the first place. Please discuss with your young person the importance of ensuring that their actions and activities outside of school are also COVID compliant. Public health advice remains that a student MUST NOT attend school or activities if any of the following are true. They have: • a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius or more • any other common symptoms of coronavirus such as a new cough, loss or changed sense of taste or smell, or shortness of breath • been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus • been living with someone who is unwell and may have coronavirus OR • If they have returned to Ireland from travel abroad in the past 14 days, other than from a country on the government's Green List. If you are in any doubt of whether or not to send your son/daughter to school, please err on the side of caution. Also, please ensure that you phone the school office prior to coming into the school. If you wish to collect your son/daughter you can log a note under the 'Permission to Leave School Early' tab on the school app. This will inform us of the time you intend to arrive to collect them. For form signing or any other business please contact the school office on 066 97 95455 to arrange a suitable time. Please know that this is not the way we prefer to operate our school, but given the current climate we are obliged to be aware in advance of how many people may be visiting the school office at anyone time. Thank you as always for your cooperation and support. .........

We have all learnt so much about the spread of COVID-19 over the past nine months. We know that it is not just our behaviour in any one place that prevents the spread of the virus; it is how we behaviour all of the time. We expect all members of our school community to practice social distancing and COVID etiquette both in and outside of school. We continue to have significant measures in place to help stop the spread of COVID on-site, but of course the ideal scenario is to prevent COVID-19 coming into the school in the first place. Please discuss with your young person the importance of ensuring that their actions and activities outside of school are also COVID compliant. Public health advice remains that a student MUST NOT attend school or activities if any of the following are true. They have: • a temperature of 38 degrees Celsius or more • any other common symptoms of coronavirus such as a new cough, loss or changed sense of taste or smell, or shortness of breath • been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus • been living with someone who is unwell and may have coronavirus OR • If they have returned to Ireland from travel abroad in the past 14 days, other than from a country on the government's Green List. If you are in any doubt of whether or not to send your son/daughter to school, please err on the side of caution. LOCKERS & TEXTBOOKS We have been working on a system which will allow students supervised access to their lockers at set times of the school day. This will enable students to bring their textbooks to school once again but may mean they will have to have books for up to 3 classes at a time in their school bag. We will be commencing with 6th Year students and, all going well, will phase-in the plan other year groups over the next few months. Any such system relies very heavily on students being responsible. It is crucial that they do not gather or congregate in the locker areas and that they only go to their lockers at the assigned time. We will be speaking to each year group in relation to this as we phase-in the plan over the next few months and we would appreciate if you would assist us in explaining the importance of following these procedures to your son/daughter. 2nd YEAR CORE SUBJECTS As advised at the start of the school year, 2nd Years will be split into Honours and Ordinary Level class groups for Irish and Maths in January. Class assignment will be based on each students’ progress this term and their Christmas exam results. This split would usually have taken place at the start of 2nd Year, but given the challenging end they had to 1st Year it was felt that students required more time make suitable to progress. ANNUAL JINGLE BELL RUN We will hold a COVID compliant version of our annual Jingle Bell Run on Friday 11th December (weather permitting). This is always a fun and exciting day for our students. We feel that more than ever it is important that we provide as many opportunities as possible for our young people to be outside, active and having fun. Given that many families are facing financial uncertainty as a result of the pandemic, we are not asking students to collect sponsorship this year. We ask that instead of the usual fundraising/contribution to school funds that you might make a small donation to a local charity of your choice, if you are in a position to do so. Thank you as always for your support and cooperation. .........
