Phased reopening of schools will depend on Covid cases – Minister

 

The Education Minister says the phased reopening of schools will only go ahead if Irish society reacts responsibly.

Over 300,000 students in the first four years of primary school, and Leaving Cert pupils, will return to class on Monday.

The other years are due to return on March 15th and April 1st, after studying at home since Christmas.

But Norma Foley says that plan could change if Covid cases increase.
