Due to the sudden and ever changing nature of this current crisis many children did not take home all their school books. Once school closures were announced on March 12th we all rushed to make some provision for children to bring home some books but not all.
Now, as we face into an indeterminable amount of school closure, what can we do?
Firstly, don’t panic. All the main school book publishers have opened their websites to access their textbooks and resources on-line.
In our school the three publishers we use are Folens, Fallons and The Educational Company.
If you do not know which publisher applies to what textbook please refer to the booklists above on this website or just google the name of the book.
• To access Folens books go to www.folensonline.ie and register as a teacher and use the roll number Prim20
• To access Fallons books go to www.cjfallon.ie and register as a teacher, but use roll number 19512I
• To access The Educational Company go to www.edcolearning.ie register with username primaryedcobooks and password edco2020
These websites can be accessed from any device.
If you do not have your copies at home – don’t worry, just start a new one. We will sort that when you return to school.
If you cannot access the books on-line please text 0877559237 (Rory D’Arcy) to arrange a time to collect the text. Please note that this may not always be possible as movement may be restricted.
School books play a secondary role compared to our health and we must avoid gatherings where possible.
