The School Day
Arrival at School
We ask that parents should drop students on Threadneedle Road or facilitate a short walk from the car if not walking, cycling or getting the bus from home. Parents are not allowed to drive through the school gates unless they display a valid Disabled Parking permit.
Entry and Exit Doors
All students will be shown their entrance/exit doors during their first day back. From then on, when a student arrives in or leaves the school, they must enter and exit through the door that has been assigned to that students year group.
The Student must proceed straight to their base room and directly to their own desk. Students may not congregate at each other's desks or lockers.
Where possible, and should the student request one, lockers will be assigned to the students. On return to school, students will be issued guidelines as to when they can access them safely. Please minimise, in so far as possible, the equipment and books that students carry to school. Please ensure all books and equipment are clearly labelled as items left lying around the school will be disposed of.
Payment of Locker €10 and School Journals is €10 and can be made at any time for online through easy payment plus on the school website.
According to the most recent Dept.of Education guidelines,face-covering is strongly recommended in post-primary settings.
• Students will provide their own mask/covering and keep a spare mask/covering at all times in Ziploc bags or other suitable containers.
•Masks must be plain in design and not display inappropriate images or slogans.
Full school uniform must be worn each day.
Lunch Time /Break Time
Lunch/breaks will be staggered to minimise congestion at these times.
2nd and Leaving Certs students @ 11.00-11.00am and 10.00-2.00pm
3rd, TY, and 5th Years students@ 10.20-10.30am and 12.30-1.10pm
Students will need to bring their own lunch & mid-morning snack as there will be no shop open. Students should have their own water/drink bottles or flasks for their own use throughout the day. The kitchen areas for Leaving Certs will not be operational for accessing water or heating lunches due to adherence to guidelines. We will advise on the date for the reopening of the Food Counter in due course.
Visitors to the School
All visitors to Salerno must make an appointment and permission be granted for admission by the principle. Should a student forget something, they may make arrangements via the office to meet outside the premises during lunchtime.
