When accessing St. Sylvester’s Infant School, those bringing and collecting children to and from the school are required to follow the new system that we have put in place for the school year 2020/21. These guidelines have been shared with parents/guardians over email. The school will have staggered opening and closing school hours for pupils. Each class will have their own designated line where parents/guardians/designated person can bring their child to school and collect them at home times. In the interests of safety, we ask that all people please respect and have patience our new guidelines.
When the Covid – 19 restrictions are lifted we will return to our regular manner of school opening and closing. The main school entrance to the school for Senior Infants and First Class children is on the Yellow Walls Road. The Junior Infants should enter and exit via the pedestrian gate located at the teachers’ car park. In the interest of safety for our Junior Infants entering the school building safely, there is no access for parents to walk from the Senior Yard to the Junior Yard. Children should be walked around the perimeter of the school from one yard to the other.
We encourage parents to park in Bridgefield car park, which is free for the first hour. Fingal County Council employs a traffic-warden who is on duty at the school gate on Yellow Walls Road both morning and afternoon. We ask parents to help us to keep the children safe by reminding them regularly to obey and be polite to the traffic warden at all times.
Any parents/guardians are not permitted to park in the staff car park or block the school gates on Dublin Road or Yellow Walls Road. The children are not insured to enter or exit via the staff car par entrance. The Staff car park must not be used for drop-offs or collections from after school activities.
Dogs are not allowed on the school grounds/premises.
Parents/Guardians should warn their children against delaying on the way home or going anywhere with strangers. Parents/Guardians are requested to speak to their children about Road Safety and the Stay Safe Programme.
