Covid-19 Update

Dear Parent/Guardian and Student, 

We are working very hard behind the scenes to make sure that students and their families are supported during these difficult times.  

To facilitate on-line learning, all students have been issued with a school e-mail.   We are running into problems because many students have forgotten their passwords. Mr. Wall is re-issuing links to reset the passwords.  We ask that students take down their password in a notebook or somewhere safe, so it does not have to be issued again.  

Students must log into OFFICE 365 to access their e-mail account.   Some students are running into difficulties because they are trying to log into Microsoft.  

While some teachers are using Google and others Edmodo to communicate with their students, many staff members are moving towards Microsoft Teams. Please see below support links for parents and students.  

Students should contact their teachers during normal school hours.   

If there is any student family out there who needs support during this time, Ms. Elaine Dillon, our Home School Community Liaison teacher is available at the end of the phone.  Her number is 087 1624105.  My e-mail is:  and Mr. Whelan’s  email address is

It has come to my attention that some parents may need to get Children’s Allowance Forms stamped.  

Please e-mail me and post the form to the following address:


Loreto College,

Crumlin Road,

Dublin 12


I will return the forms by post.  

Take care of yourselves and your family at this time.   To the sixth years, try not to worry.   The Department of Education and the State Examinations Commission will be working behind the scenes on a contingency plan.  It is out of our hands now and all you can do is stay well, keep up the study, support each other, and stay in contact with your teachers.  

Kind regards,

Ms. Murphy.
