Yellow Jackets



Now that we have had time to get ourselves and the children settled back to school we would like to remind everyone of road safety in our school.

The school car park will be no longer available for parents, etc. to park in at 3pm. Our designated school bus and disabled parking zone must be left free for those who have been allocated these spaces. You may still drive in after 3.10pm when the car park is clear. For those collecting at 2pm there will be limited parking but we ask that these spaces be left free for those parents with babies and young children.


We would also like to remind everyone of the rules in using the County Club car park. We are indebted to the County Club for the use of their car park and must respect their request in parking over the ramp on the Dublin end and keeping your children with you at all times.

Please Read and return slip to school office:

           In the mornings it would help if cars could exit the County Club at the Dublin end.   

For those turning left out of the school car park we would like to remind you there is now no U-TURN at the end of the Growtown/Powderlough/Lagore Road. Please take a right turn at the end of this road and drive around the triangle taking you back onto the Dunshaughlin-Dublin Road.  This is for the safety of children walking to school.

If entering the school car park at busy times when coming from Dunshaughlin or Dublin side please ensure that there is enough space for your car to enter the car park and that the rear of your car is not on the main road. This could cause a very serious accident as other drivers have to overtake you onto the other side of the road or into the filter lane for entering the school. If the school car park is full please turn into County Club to park.

Our usual rules still apply but please read with your children to refresh your memory.

  • The school car park in the mornings is a Drop-Off Zone ONLY. We do have a yellow box area which is reserved for our school bus and for wheel chair accessibility so please leave clear.

  • When walking children to and from school please use footpaths and when using County Club Car Park please go from yellow box to yellow box.

  • If you need to accompany your child into the yard or the school or if they need extra time getting out of the car, please park in the County Club and cross the road with the help of Jenny (our lollipop lady).

  • The school car park is a one–way system.

  • Please do not let your children out of the car halfway through the car park.  This can cause a backup of cars behind you out on to the N3.

  • When you reach the exit gate, one of the yellow jackets will be there to help your children exit the car.  There should be no need for the driver to get out of the car.

  • To aid the process of helping the children from the car, please ensure that the children have their coats on and their bags ready before you arrive at the school.

  • When exiting the school car park PLEASE TURN LEFT, there is NO RIGHT TURN this is a traffic rule, not a school rule.

  • When parking in the County Club car park at 2pm and 3pm you must DRIVE OVER THE RAMP AND PARK at the DUBLIN END of the car park. Children are not allowed run freely and must stay at your side at all times. We are indebted to the County Club for allowing us to use their car park and we MUST adhere to these rules.

  • If using the County Club car park in the mornings please keep your children beside you and be very vigilant of moving cars at all times.

  • The County Club car park may not be used as a drop off zone in the morning. Please use the school car park drop off system if you wish to drop your children.



Please read this with your children and share it with whoever is responsible for dropping your children to school in the morning and collecting after school – grandparents, minders, car poolers etc.
