To all of our school community, I would like to thank all of the students that have fully engaged and embraced the challenge of online learning. I have received reports from staff that the volume and quality of work has been terrific. With the Easter holidays fast approaching it is important that you should take a break from your studies. Third Year and Leaving Certificate Applied students are expected to revise during these two weeks. Online contact with staff will be minimal and only through prior arrangement with the teacher. We have had no further clarification from the Department of Education re:state exams. As soon as we have any further news we will post it here. If we have to continue with this method of teaching and learning after the Easter break we will distribute more guidelines. I would like to thank Mr Fleming and the other teachers that have created and collected PPE from the school and donated them to local Health Centres. The school is closed at this time as it is important to adhere to all Government guidelines but if you need any support from the school please contact us on 040232149, email@example.com, or Ms Gregan HSCL…
What's on this week: Parents & Guardians, I refer to the announcements made by the Minister for Education and Skills, Mr. Joe Mc Hugh T.D., on Friday 10th April and Friday 8th May regarding the postponement and the revised arrangements of the Junior Cycle and Leaving Certificate examinations. As a result of these decision I wish to confirm that the State Examinations Commission (SEC) is refunding all candidates who have paid their examination fee for 2020. Refunds were processed on May 26th for all candidates that paid the examination fee online. Refunds will go back to the card/account which was used to pay the fee. The process can take up to 7 days to process. If candidates have not received the refund by June 10th , they should email firstname.lastname@example.org with their exam number.

Department of Education COVID 19 update 10 March
For any of our parents or students that may have concerns regarding COVID 19 please follow this link to the HSE information and advice. HSE Coronavirus
Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s), The Teachers Union of Ireland (TUI) has notified KWETB that, following a ballot, all TUI members have been directed to take strike action on Tuesday 4th February 2020. On that day, pickets will be placed on workplaces where TUI members are employed. This school has a number of teachers who are members of the TUI. Following a detailed assessment of the implications of the strike action on the operation of the school, management in consultation with the Education and Training Board has reluctantly decided that it cannot guarantee the health and safety of students/learners on the premises on that day. Therefore, we are informing you not to send your child to school on Tuesday 4th February. Glenart College will be open to receive students on Wednesday 5th February. Yours faithfully, Ms Kearns, Principal
