Re: Confirmed case of COVID-19 at Intermediate School Killorglin
A confirmed case of COVID-19 in your child’s school has been notified to the Department of Public
A public health risk assessment has been undertaken. The parents of any children deemed to be
close contacts of the confirmed case have been contacted and advised accordingly.
If your child has not been identified as a close contact at this time, your child does not need a test
for Covid-19, they can continue to attend school, and no further actions are required at this time.
If your child develops any symptoms suggestive of Covid-19 infection (such as a cough, a fever, loss
or change in sense of taste or smell), please do not send your child to school. Contact your GP and
begin restricting your child’s movements. Restricted movement means avoiding contact with other
people and social situations as much as possible. It means that your child stays at home and:
o Does not go to school
o Does not use public transport
o Does not have visitors in your home
o Does not go to the shops or pharmacy, unless absolutely necessary
o Keeps away from older people, anyone with an underlying medical condition and pregnant
The Department of Public Health HSE-South is monitoring the school situation closely.
Further information on COVID-19 is available at: www.hpsc.ie and www.gov.ie

Donut Day was a great success with a grand total of 598 donuts delivered to every corner of the building! The TY students would like to thank you all for your support and hope that you enjoy your tasty treat. Our thanks to John Dough's for coming up trumps on a very busy Toy Show Day for them. To those who were disappointed that we sold out we promise another Donut Day in the very near future!
