As you are aware Mountrath Community School has on-going issues with parking outside the school, which we are currently trying to resolve. We have applied for funding from the DES to resolve the situation. We have also written to all the candidates in the General Election looking for their support but we would also like your support by making this an issue on the doorstep.
In the meantime we would appreciate the support of the parents with regard to collection of children especially at home-time. We would ask parents to park on the main street coming up to the turn for the school or in the Church yard. We would also like parents to note that they are not allowed to enter the bus turning circle at home-time, as it poses a particular Health and Safety risk to the students. We can only address this problem with everyone’s co-operation. We would appeal to you to follow the above in the interests of the Health and Safety of all our students.
We will continue to pursue the DES for funding but again would appeal to you to make the parking at the school an issue on the doorstep.
