School Closure Contingency Plan – CBS Roscommon

Dear Parent/Guardian,


Roscommon CBS has put in place a contingency plan to deal with the recently announced emergency school closure as a result of Covid 19 virus.  We know that students – in particular the exam classes – will be very concerned and we hope that we can help alleviate some of these worries. 


Teaching and learning can continue to take place remotely over the Microsoft Office 365 platform.


Every student and staff member had a  **** e mail address.  


They all have access to WordExcelPowerPointOneNoteOutlookTeams, Publisher, and Access (Publisher and Access available on PC only).  


These apps can be installed on multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets, and Android phones. 


Teachers will be able to share class notes over the Office 365 platform or schedule online classes/meetings if necessary. 


Many of the publishers have their books/exam papers online e.g. ,, and we would suggest that students would also look on these websites. 


We will stay in regular contact with parents and students to update on any announcements.  Please check our school website regularly for all updates


We would ask you to remind your son to check his school email address and/or teams on a very regular basis.  


If any parent or student has a query or a concern, please do not hesitate to contact us via email and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 


We thank you for your co-operation and support. We hope that you, your family and your community remain healthy and safe and we urge you to take every precaution in this regard.
