ETSS WICKLOW
 

ETSS Wicklow Reopens

ETSS Wicklow opened its doors to students for the first time since March on Monday 31 August. 

Everyone was introduced to' Safety Month' where training and practice of all elements of our Covid-19 Response Plan were organised by Alicia, Lead Worker Representative (LWR) - staff played a key role in helping the plan come to life and students worked hard to get used to PPE, social distancing and new hygiene measures. It's a challenging time for sure, but our objective is to build a sense of security and calmness step by step, week by week. 

ETSS Wicklow Covid-19 Response Plan is published in PDF form here and will be subject to regular review as the year progresses. Thank you to everyone for your part in helping us work together to create the safest possible conditions for learning at our school.
