Parents of children at St Finian’s in Mullingar were told on Sunday that classes would go online for a week, as directed by the HSE.
The mixed school has over 600 students, all of whom will study remotely by Wednesday at the earliest.
A message to parents read: “In view of a number of cases where Covid has affected the school and has consulted public health, the board has decided with regret to close the school for Monday October 12 and Tuesday October 13 October to close.
