Our school is getting a lot of work done inside over the hols along with a new extension. Parents are now saying, having been speaking to some people contracted to do the work, that the work inside will not be neared finished by 3rd Sept and the extension hasnt even been started. Does anyone know if the board of management can make a decision to remain closed for a further week and if so do we have to make up the days as the school year progresses, or is there "emergency" days for situations like this which are out of their control. If there is no ESB or a snowfall and the school is closed I dont think they have to make these days back up. Would love your thoughts on this.

I suppose at least the Government are keeping to their promises of building the schools. Think I would prefer my children to be in a half built school than a GAA club or a racecourse :)
